The Manlio Rossi-Doria Centre for Social and Economic Research is a leading academic institute at Roma Tre University. Its research and advanced training activities focus on economic development, internationalization of firms, public policies and European integration.

This year the Centre will hold its first annual “International School for Advanced Training in Public Policy Impact Evaluation. Concepts, Methods, Applications.”

The organizing committee includes Mara Giua, Anna Giunta, Pierluigi Montalbano, Silvia Nenci, Guido Pellegrini and Luca Salvatici.

The School will be held in the two weeks from 11 to 22 June 2018, at the Economics Department of Roma Tre University, Via Silvio D’Amico, 77, Rome.

TARGET AND OBJECTIVES
The School is designed for government officers, administrators, private professionals, researchers and doctoral students with an interest in public policy assessment. The objective is to provide participants with the skills for an overall policy assessment, by going through the techniques in close association with the specific context of the policies analysed.

APPROACH
With reference to the territorial, industrial and commercial policies and programs, the School’s didactic curriculum relies on three pillars:

  • CONCEPTS

The definitory elements of the policy (for instance, policy maker’s objectives, program beneficiaries, contextual factors) and how they can be identified.

  • METHODS

The tools to assess the policy’s impact. How to select the most suitable for the specific context and how to apply it.

  • APPLICATIONS

The practice of the policy’s impact evaluation. How to carry out the assessment exercise, useful data sources, software and main statistics packages.

The School consists of two one-week modules:

  • Industrial and Territorial Policies (11-15 June), in Italian;
  • Trade Policies from a Development Perspective (18-22 June), in English

PROGRAM

Each module comprises both classroom lectures (Concepts, Methods) and laboratory exercises (Applications). Participants will also be provided with multimedia material designed specifically to teach basic background knowledge and skills preliminary to the course (notions of econometrics, tutorials on the use of such software as Stata and GAMS, tutorials on navigating the main databases).
