PhD Workshop: 16th Summer School on History of Economic Thought, Economic Philosophy and Economic History (METU, Ankara, Turkey)

The Summer School on History of Economic Thought, Economic Philosophy and Economic History was established in 1998. In 2013, it is organised by Middle East Technical University, Department of Economics and Administrative Sciences (Ankara, Turkey) and PHARE, University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne (Paris, France) in Ankara (Turkey). This summer school aims:

  • To provide a thematic and specialised formation to PhD students in these fields of study;
  • To guarantee the diffusion and scientific assessment of their work;
  • To provide new approaches and enhance knowledge in contemporary economic analysis;
  • To introduce PhD students to trans-disciplinary perspectives in the social sciences.

In line with this general approach, the Summer School is organized as follows:

  • Workshops where PhD students present their work as written contributions to the debate, discussing them with senior scholars;
  • Seminars presented by invited professors and researchers on the topic “Growth and Development : History, Theory, Policy”.

Tutorials aiming at helping PhD students with preparation of their work with a view to its further diffusion and publication will be organised.
