The research project “Social Interactions, Stratification and Inequality” (ANR-12-INEG-0002) benefits from the funding of the ANR program “Métamorphoses des societés : Inégalités-inégalité” for the period 2013-2015.
Rachel Kranton (Duke University) and Kristian Behrens (UQAM)
Over the last decade, social interactions models have contributed to a better understanding of the mechanics of urban segregation and persistent inequality.
This Summer School is devoted to studying recent advances in models of social interactions and city formation..
Two leading researchers have been invited :
- Rachel Kranton will deliver six hours of lectures on her work on identity and social networks.
- Kristian Behrens will give six hours of lectures on his research on urbanisation, firm selection, and sorting.
On the final day, participants will have the opportunity to present their papers to the audience. We will select no more than eight such papers.
