University of Copenhagen / Copenhagen Summer University
15.08.2011 - 19.08.2011  Copenhagen
Though the overall goal of development aid is still to foster economic development and reduce poverty in the poorest places on the globe, there is a strong trend towards supporting measurable objectives, outcomes and impacts. Therefore the fields of economics and statistics are given more prominent roles when measuring whether foreign aid \"works\". This course will examine how the the impact of aid is evaluated through cutting edge research within economics.
