About this course:
This course provides a short introduction to the topic of discrimination in economics.
We will start by going over different concepts of discrimination (for example, taste-based discrimination, statistical discrimination), and using those to gain familiarity with recent and exciting work on the topic.
The emphasis will be placed on labor market gender and ethnic discrimination, with a particular focus on field experiments.
Practical guidance on how to set up a correspondence testing experiment will be provided.
This course will be lectured in English.
