The Human Capital and Economic Opportunity Global Working Group (HCEO) and the Institute for Economic and Social Research (IESR) at Jinan University are delighted to announce their Summer School on Socioeconomic Inequality, Guangzhou 2022, organized by Shuaizhang Feng and Petra Todd.

SSSI 2022 will take place over Zoom, from July 11 to 15, 2022. The summer school will provide a state-of-the-art overview of the study of inequality and human flourishing. Participants will learn about advanced modeling and econometric techniques for understanding and addressing inequality. Through rigorous lectures, students will be exposed to tools needed to study the dynamic processes that produce conditions of inequality and ways to address it. During this intense program, students attend lectures, engage in discussions with leading faculty, present their own research, and interact with peers.

Students are selected from a diverse, competitive applicant pool and represent many disciplines including: economics, public policy, sociology, social thought, and social work. Faculty are selected by SSSI directors from the field of economics.

The summer school is open to Ph.D. students, early postdoctoral scholars, and junior faculty from around the world. There is no program fee for admitted students.
