Development Economics II University of Tsukuba

Course Overview

This course is for the graduate students who are interested not only in the concepts and theories in development economics but also passionate in the best practices/empirical works. This course gives practical understanding and experiences of how pro-poor policies work in practice in the field of international development- the focus mostly comes from the instructors` continued high quality empirical research including randomized control trails (RCTs). Best practices on the natural experiments and quasi experiments are also discussed. The course will also give exposure about how tools of macroeconomics, microeconomics, econometrics, international trade, etc. are applied to understanding the problems of development, and how data and empirical evidence can shed light on conflicting views and questions about the process of development.
