UNU-WIDER is excited to announce the launch of a Winter School on tax policy research. The aim of the course is to provide African researchers with an understanding of the theories, methods, and data availability for conducting high quality analysis on tax and development economics. The deadline for applications is 18 March 2022 23:59 UTC+2.
The course will take place in two parts. Part one of the course is a 3-day online Stata and Statistics bootcamp to be held 31 May – 2 June 2022.

During part two of the Winter school, participants will take part in lectures given by leading experts from UNU-WIDER’s global network and work intensively in the computer lab to strengthen their quantitative research skills.
