Instructor: Gianluca Stefani

The Course provides an introduction to Impact Analysis underlining its role within the Policy Cycle. The main techniques of analysis (differences in differences, regression discontinuity design, matching, as well as instrumental variables) are illustrated with empirical applications using the Stata software. Case studies are analysed working in groups on technical reports and scientific articles dealing with either poverty or agri-environmental issues.
