The Summer School has given rise to ECLAC’s School of Advanced Studies on Latin American Economies, a plural space for thought that promotes discussion, reflection, and the exchange of ideas on development theories and policies. It combines specialized contributions from different ECLAC divisions with the advances and debates on the frontier of academic research.
The School is an opportunity to discuss development issues with depth and rigor, while respecting the pluralism inherent in the social sciences. Theoretical and empirical issues are addressed during the program, with emphasis on the experience of Latin American countries. The program is structured in four modules: economic history and political economy, structuralist macroeconomics, evolutionary microeconomics, and development.
The School is aimed at young researchers around the world. Classes are taught by ECLAC staff and also by leading external teachers invited every year. The program is offered annually between the months of July and September.
Participants are exempt from payment of tuition and course fees but are responsible to cover costs of transfer, travel, accommodation and stay which are not considered in the scholarship.
