The programme of the Winter School gathers high-level public economics thinkers to strengthen graduate training and research in public economics and public policy.
The three themes selected for the 2017 edition are:
- Tax design and tax policy
- Housing and urban development
- The role of the state in financial markets
On 3 July 2017 UNU-WIDER researchers contributed to the programme on different topics. Director Finn Tarp provided a keynote address on African development, Chief Economist and Deputy Director Tony Addison presented on extractives industries, and Non-Resident Senior Research Fellow Jukka Pirttilä shared recent empirical lessons on tax and development.
