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.
Matthew Jackson (Stanford University)
and Steven Durlauf (University of Wisconsin-Madison)
Over the last decade, developments in both behavioral economics and network theory have offered new models of social interactions. These theories allow to better understand the role of peer influence and externalities in urban segregation and inequality. This Summer School is devoted to the study of the recent advances in these fields. Two leading researchers have been invited. Steven Durlauf will first deliver a 6 hours lecture on his works on social interactions. Matthew Jackson will then give a 6 hours lecture on his research on social networks. The final day will provide to the participants the opportunity to present their paper to the audience. No more than 8 papers will be selected.
