The course covers a range of traditional and contemporary topics in Labour Economics with an emphasis on applied microeconomic theory and empirical analysis. In particular, the course starts by introducing the traditional models of labour supply, labour demand and human capital investments. With the basics covered, we will dive deeper into topics high on public and research agenda such as technological shift, discrimination, education inequality and intergenerational mobility. The aim is to give students an up to date knowledge of labour economics and, for those who wish to undertake graduate research in the area, to encourage the development of independent research interests.
