We are pleased to announce HCEO’s first-ever virtual Summer School on Socioeconomic Inequality (SSSI). Composed of lectures from across years and countries, this public online course is designed for Ph.D. students. HCEO’s summer school program is aimed at teaching the tools needed to study inequality and to communicate a sense of the research frontier on this topic. We also intend for the virtual SSSI to break down barriers between theoretical, econometric, and empirical work. In it, you will find video lectures from 11 leading scholars and HCEO network members (including HCEO Directors James J. Heckman and Steven N. Durlauf), as well as reading lists related to the lectures.

HCEO thanks our funder – the Institute for New Economic Thinking – as well as the Center for the Economics of Human Development for their support of the Human Capital and Economic Opportunity Global Working Group. We hope you find SSSI a valuable experience.

We welcome your feedback on this inaugural virtual program through this survey.
