External Activity: GRCH-OPES Workshop

Education and Intergenerational Mobility

University of Quebec in Montreal, President Kennedy Building

Friday 14 Apr 2023
From 9AM To 4:45PM

The Research Group on Human Capital will hold its sixth workshop in collaboration with the Observatory for children’s education and health (OPES) on Friday, April 14, 2023, at UQAM. The workshop is organized by Catherine Haeck and Marie Connolly, both Full professors at ESG-UQAM, researcher and CIRANO Fellow as well as Sylvana Côté, Full professor at Université de Montréal and Director of the OPES and Andrei Munteanu, Professor at ESG-UQAM.

Seven academic researchers from the fields of Economics and Psychology will present recent work. The presentations primarily feature empirical research using microeconometric models, with a particular emphasis on questions of identification of causal effects. The workshop is intended to promote discussions and exchanges on the theme of intergenerational mobility and its association with education.

The workshop is open not only to academics (professors, researchers, graduate students), but also to administrators and policymakers as well as to officials from governmental institutions with an interest in the topic.
