Call for Applications: Summer School on Labour Markets in Central Asia


In July 2014 SIPRI and the Institute of Public Policy and Administration of the University of Central Asia (UCA) will offer a Summer School programme in Kyrgyzstan entitled ‘Labour Markets in Central Asia’.

The objective of the Summer School is to teach the basics of labour economics, discuss a range of labour market issues in Central Asia and beyond, and introduce relevant research and policy evaluation methods.

The content of the course will include the basics of labour economics theory; related topics such as education, migration, social safety and economic policies; statistical and econometric methods; and micro-data exercises.

Applicants should currently hold a teaching or research position at a university-level institution in Central Asia. Applicants not educated in universities in developed countries will be given priority. Applicants currently residing and working outside the Central Asian region will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

A limited number of spaces will be made available for policy analysts from government, international agencies and civil society organizations.
