Master in Applied Labour Economics for Development

This master responds to the need for more diverse expertise in the design and evaluation of policies in which international labour standards and fundamental rights at work go hand-in-hand with job creation and productive employment. It is intended to prepare participants to become experts in designing, analysing and evaluating policies that place employment at the heart of economic, social and development policy-making. The course will combine rigorous training in analytical and quantitative economic methods with an emphasis on what constitutes an appropriate policy, the legal and institutional framework for employment and decent work in different development contexts.
