hands In collaboration with Université Laval, the PEP team is offering the Third Edition of the PEP-Laval Intensive Graduate School in Development Economics, to be held at Université Laval, in Quebec City (Canada) in June 2013.

This third edition offers, for the very first time, a component on linking macro and micro simulation models. This is essential to conducting distributive (poverty, inequality, etc.) analysis of the results of macro policy/shock simulations

The program offers three separate courses (it is possible to take one, two or all three courses)

  • June 3 - June 7, 2013 Development Policy Modeling
  • June 10 - June 14, 2013 Understanding the Macro-micro Linkages of Policy and Development
  • June 17 - June 21, 2013 Dynamic Impacts of Macroeconomic Policies ans Shocks

Target Audience

  • University students

  • Staff from the private and public sectors in search of advanced training on the economic analysis of development.

  • Students and staff of national governments and international organizations.
Upon completion of each of these courses, participants will receive a certificate of continued education from Université Laval. Under certain conditions, the courses can also be credited towards completion of a university degree program.

An attractive feature of this program is that it is based on training material developed in collaboration with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and other international organizations. It also uses analytical tools and techniques that have been developed by the School’s own teaching team and that are now valued worldwide by development practitioners and analysts.

This includes CGE models, as well as original software and computer programs, such as the well-known Distributive Analysis/Analyse Distributive (DAD) software and the Stata-compatible Distributive Analysis for Stata Package (DASP).
