  • IFAU and UCLS Conference on Education and Human Capital

    IFAU and UCLS Conference on Education and Human Capital

    June 20–21, 2023

    Thanks to all of you who has shown a great interest in our upcoming conference and has submitted abstracts and papers. The organizers expect to communicate the acceptance decisions by March 31. 

    The functioning of the education system and the potential for policies to level the playing field are fundamental research questions in the economics of education. This conference aims at bringing together leading scholars in the field to provide better foundations for education policy. Important questions include, e.g., the drivers and consequences of school segregation, the implications of school choice and school governance, and the effects of school resources and teacher training.
