Summer School - "The global economy: searching for a new equilibrium", 17-24 June 2017, Italy

Publish Date: Mar 17, 2017

Deadline: Apr 28, 2017

Event Dates: from Jun 17, 2017 12:00 to Jun 24, 2017 12:00

"The global economy: searching for a new equilibrium"

The I.S.E.O Institute is extremely honoured to feature Jean Tirole (Nobel Laureate in Economics 2014) and Michael Spence (Nobel Laureate in Economics 2001) and Eric Maskin (Nobel Laureate in Economics 2007) as lecturers for the 14th edition of the I.S.E.O Summer School.

The I.S.E.O Summer School is an international summer course focused on the most topical economic discussion. The 14th edition of this prestigious course will be focused on "The global economy: searching for a new equilibrium" : this macro theme will be analyzed by each lecturer using his particular approach and studies.

As from the very first edition in 2004, the course will gather a large number of graduate students in Economics coming from the most important faculties in the world to participate to this multicultural debate. That's one of the most appreciated peculiarity of the course: the unique multiethnic background.

Based on a stimulating environment, the 14th edition of the I.S.E.O Summer School will take place from Saturday the 17th to Saturday the 24th June 2017: it will be based on a fair combination of lectures, debates and discussion on one hand, and trips and excursion into the most beautiful corners of Northern Italy on the other. Classes will be structured so to stimulate discussion among the full group of participants, contributing to the debate with their own academic background.

As usual, the course will be settled in Iseo, a peaceful village facing the homonymous lake ( Iseo lake) in Northern Italy, not too far from Milan. Classes and participants' accomodation are guested by a four star hotel on the lake, namely the Iseolago hotel.
