CAGE Summer School 2022

New research in political economy

Supported by the Economic and Social Science Research Council (ESRC)

University of Warwick and online (hybrid)
27 June – 30 June 2022 (Guests arrive 26 June and depart 1 July) 


Academic organisers: Mirko Draca and Noam Yuchtman

Organised jointly with QAPEC (Quantitative & Analytical Political Economy research Centre)

The theme of the CAGE Summer School 2022 is new research in political economy. We welcome applications from PhD students and early postdoctoral researchers working in this area.

Our summer school will provide insights on a broad spectrum of research perspectives in political economy, such as economics of the media, social movements, the role of money in politics, and the political economy of developing economies.

Professor Leonardo Burzstyn (University of Chicago) will give the Keynote Speech.

Sessions will consist of lectures delivered by Associate Professor Monica Martinez-Bravo (CEMFI Madrid); Associate Professor Julia Cagé (Science Po); Professor Mirko Draca (Warwick); Professor Chris Roth (Cologne University); Professor David Yang (Harvard University); and Professor Noam Yuchtman (London School of Economics).

Special guest speakers:

Frances Cairncross (British economist, journalist and academic)
Eliot Higgins (Bellingcat)
Mary Hui (Quartz)
Tom Wainwright (The Economist)

Students will present their research and receive feedback from the lecturers and other participants.

There will also be a group visit to an outside attraction (restrictions allowing).

This will be a hybrid event with participants and lecturers joining in-person and online.

If travel/COVID restrictions are tightened, we may consider:
· overseas participants move to online
· moving the event to fully online (all participants)
This will depend on government and university recommendations.

The CAGE Research Centre is fully accessible, and we will support participants with any special practical requirements they may have to attend the Summer School in-person or online.
