The Royal Economic Society Easter and Autumn Schools

Lead Research Organisation: University of Birmingham
Department Name: Economics


The Royal Economic Society Schools provide a four to five day intensive programme of lectures by two world renowned experts in an important branch of economics to a highly selected group of some 25 PhD students, generally close to completion, and young faculty, mostly at UK universities.

One School is in late March or April, and the other in September. The subject for the 2010 Easter School was Credit, Business Cycles and Finance. It covered important recent advances in knowledge in these areas. The instructors were Professors Nobuhiro Kiyotaki and Stephen Morris, both of Princeton University. It took place between 18th and 22nd April, 2010. The School is residential, with lectures, discussions, accommodation and meals in a pleasant complex of buildings at the University of Birmingham. There are opportunities for participants to make presentations on their research, and receive comments.

The main aims of the Schools are to deepen advanced researchers' acquaintance with new ideas and techniques, and build a network of contacts and collaboration between the country's best young scholars researching in the fields covered by the School - and thereby provide a major continuing benefit to UK universities.
