Does welfare spending reduce poverty? Does the minimum wage destroy jobs? Does trade liberalisation increase inequality? Does development aid really help poor countries? Do longer sentences reduce crime? Policy makers around the globe are confronted with these questions on a daily basis and effective policy interventions can only be designed with good answers.
Measuring and understanding the effect of policies is now more important than ever in any field, from development to labour, from finance to education and beyond. The Geneva Summer School in “Evaluating Policy Interventions” offers students a comprehensive understanding of the most advanced techniques of policy evaluation through a powerful combination of theoretical classes and applied examples.
