IGIDR Workshop on DSGE Modeling for Emerging Economies

August 6th and 7th, 2018

 

On August 6th and 7th, 2018, Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research (IGIDR), is organizing a workshop on dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) modeling for emerging markets. The latest-generation DSGE models are the workhorse of modern macroeconomic theory and policy.  Dr. Viktoria Hnatkovska (Vancouver School of Economics) will conduct Dynare- and Matlab-based training aimed at practical or ‘how to do’ aspects on DSGE modeling for research students and faculty. Those working in this area can apply. The training will focus on the formulation and estimation of DSGE models with a special emphasis on emerging market economies. The course will be followed by a one-day conference. Papers are invited on all theoretical and empirical aspects of DSGE modeling for the conference.
