Call for Papers: 5th LEER Conference on Education Economics, April 4-5, 2019
This conference seeks to explore the use of economic and econometric techniques to study educational issues. We invite the submission of original research from colleagues working in the area. We especially welcome research which applies identification strategies as difference-in-differences, instrumental variables, regression discontinuity, static and dynamic choice modeling, (non-)parametric frontier models and structural equations. Both macro and micro-economic topics are of interest to this conference. The workshop is organized by research center ‘Leuven Economics of Education Research’ (LEER) of the Faculty of Economics and Business at KU Leuven.
