This subject is specifically designed for students who plan to do economic research of their own and/or who are interested in case studies in applied economics. During the subject six different topics will be introduced by various different members of staff. Each topic will be discussed for just one week - during two separate three-hour workshops. In most cases, the first workshop will provide some theoretical background to the topic under consideration, while the second workshop will show how these theories are tested, empirically, in 'real life' case studies.
