Summer School on Socioeconomic Opportunity and Inequality

Location: Seoul National University

Program Dates: 19-21 July 2023

Application Deadline: 31 May 2023


The Summer School on Socioeconomic Opportunity and Inequality seeks to provide the next generation of scholars with the multidisciplinary underpinning necessary for effective research on inequality dynamics. It will feature leading scholars tackling inequality research from the lens of economics, sociology, and public policy, to foster cross-disciplinary approaches to inequality research and public policy evaluation regarding long-term inequality issues. It will also engage advanced Ph.D. students and early-career faculty through immersive lectures on state-of-the-art methods for inequality research, one-on-one and small-group meetings with senior researchers, and poster sessions where summer school students can receive input on their early-stage research from the research community. The summer schools are designed to yield long-term benefits in creating lasting intellectual links that can be pursued long after the conclusion of the meetings. This second summer school of 2023 will be organized in partnership between the Stone Center for Research on Wealth Inequality and the Institute for Economic Research at Seoul National University in Seoul, South Korea.


The summer school is open to advanced Ph.D. students, postdoctoral scholars, and junior faculty from around the world.
