The Structural Transformation and Economic Growth research programme is offering a virtual course entitled “Key Concepts in Macro Development” for the spring of 2021, which will be taught by a series of lecturers.
The research programme on Structural Transformation and Economic Growth (STEG), led by the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR), will hold its first virtual annual conference on 13-15 January 2021.
The STEG programme is structured around six themes. In August and September 2020, the six themes held online workshops. These workshops are a way of increasing the visibility of STEG within the research community and will play a role in helping to share knowledge of the current research frontier and in identifying open research questions. Please see the details for the different theme workshops below:
STRUCTURAL TRANSFORMATION AND ECONOMIC GROWTH (STEG) :
A new research initiative launched to underpin development policy in low- and middle-income countries
As low-income countries begin to look beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, a new research programme aims to strengthen their potential for achieving long-run growth and economic transformation.
The Structural Transformation and Economic Growth (STEG) research programme was launched with a virtual inception workshop on the 4th and 5th June 2020, with an introduction to the intellectual framework of the project, a discussion of its key research themes and two keynote lectures: the first by Professor Gita Gopinath, Chief Economist at the International Monetary Fund; and the second by Professor Kaushik Basu of Cornell University, and former Chief Economist at the World Bank.
