Workshop October 6, 2017

Social Mobility and Intergenerational Transmissions

The Research Group on Human Capital invites you to attend its fourth workshop, which will be held on Friday, October 6, 2017, at the University of Quebec in Montreal. Six or seven academic researchers from the fields of Economics and Sociology will present recent work. The presentations will primarily feature empirical research using microeconometric models, with a particular emphasis on questions of identification of causal effects. The workshop is intended to promote discussion and exchanges on the theme of social mobility, broadly speaking, with a special interest in the role of public policies and interventions and their potential to equalize opportunities. Topics covered in this workshop include social mobility, intergenerational transmissions, social stratification, public policies, and social inequalities. 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.

The workshop will take place at the University of Quebec in Montreal, building Président-Kennedy, 201 Président-Kennedy Avenue (Place-des-Arts metro station), room PK-1140, from 8:55 AM to 5:00 PM.

The organizers wish to thank the FRQSCCIRPÉE, ESG UQAM, CRDCN and QICSS for their support.

Workshop participants are encouraged to stay at the hotel Delta Montreal, 475 Président-Kennedy Avenue.
