Workshop May 27-28 2019: The social gradient in human capital formation

Call for papers- Workshop: The social gradient in human capital formation

Uppsala, May 27-28, 2019

Parental behaviors and living conditions in childhood have been shown to influence child health and the development of both non-cognitive and cognitive skills. Inequalities in early human capital formation contribute to a social gradient in school performance and labor market outcomes. Yet, the various pathways between child health, human capital formation and the environment and institutions with which the child interacts are not well understood. The purpose of the workshop is to provide an opportunity for researchers to present and discuss research contributing to the understanding on the social gradient in human capital formation with a special focus on health.

Keynote speaker will be Gabriella Conti, University College London. The meeting will take place at Ekonomikum, Uppsala University and is organized by the Department of Economics, UCLS, IFAU and HEFUU. The academic committee consists of Anna Sjögren, Eva Mörk and Helena Svaleryd. Accommodation will be reserved in central Uppsala. The organizers will cover accommodation and travel costs (economy) for presenting authors and discussants. We expect to have about 10-15 contributed papers.
