Max Planck Summer School for Women* in Political Economy

Summer School
  • Start: Sep 11, 2023
  • End: Sep 14, 2023
  • Location: Cologne

The problem, however, mostly becomes acute at the postdoctoral level since many qualified and talented women who pursue a PhD in Political Economy or related disciplines leave academia and choose not to pursue an academic career. Young political economists who identify as women* lack both role models and a network in the discipline. The Max Planck Summer School for Women* in Political Economy aims to address some of these problems. [more]
