Policies For Development:
The OECD Development Centre at Work 19 August – 23 August, 2013
Sebastian Nieto Parra, Economist, OECD Development Centre
Jean-Philippe Stijns, Economist, OECD Development Centre
The purpose of this course is to present the work of the OECD Development Centre on public policies for development and explain its role within the OECD as the link between developing, emerging and OECD economies. Using evidence-based research done at the Development Centre (annual flagship reports, policy briefs and working papers), this course covers the role of emerging and developing economies in the changing world economy as well as policies needed to achieve a fairer, better and stronger economic growth. The course will present the current issues concerning development such as social cohesion, middle class, informality, migration, education, fiscal policy, infrastructure, financial development and remittances. The course will look at social and economic policies that should be implemented to exploit better opportunities for development in African and Latin American economies.
Basic knowledge of macroeconomics is desired but not a pre-requisite.
