This summer school aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the connection between gender and society. It takes an interdisciplinary approach to explore various trends and theoretical perspectives, applied to significant societal challenges. Specifically, we will address economic and sociological issues, such as the wage gap between genders and the underrepresentation of women in various domains. Our focus will be on analyzing the root causes of these issues and examining potential government interventions. By the end of the course, participants will have gained a deeper knowledge of the topic and developed the skills to discuss and analyze the relationship between gender and society. Additionally, the program will cover a range of empirical research methods used to study this relationship, such as experimental techniques and causal inference, offering participants practical insights into conducting research.
