Policy Evaluation in Health

The Barcelona GSE Summer Forum Workshop on Policy Evaluation in Health will run for 2 days and will take place on June 8-9, 2021 in Barcelona (or online, if an in-person event is not possible).

The aim of the workshop is to explore the impact of public policies on health outcomes. Papers that analyze either the short or the long term impact of the introduction of a public policy on health outcomes are particularly encouraged. Some examples include: labor market reforms, immigration laws, long-term care, education or pension changes and some examples of outcomes include mortality, health behaviors, hospitalizations, incidence of diseases, etc. Papers related to the COVID-19 pandemic are also welcomed.

Covid safety considerations

Our current plan is to hold this workshop in person in Barcelona. In the event that in-person activities are not possible, this workshop will be moved online.

The Summer Forum organizers are closely monitoring COVID-19 health and safety regulations. Any changes to the workshop format will be communicated in a timely manner. Thank you for your understanding! We look forward to receiving your paper submission.
