The quantitative analysis of ageing and its inequality to social inequality
March the 7th- the 11th, 2016

The School is promoted by ECSR, Collegio Carlo Alberto and by the universities of Milan and Turin in the frame of the NASP (Network for the Advancement in Social and Political Studies). It provides high-quality training on leading-edge theories and methodological approaches to the quantitative analysis of ageing in contemporary societies. Particular attention will be given to the role of social and institutonal factors in shaping the individual outcomes in terms of social stratification and equality of opportunities. A limited number of doctoral students and young researchers will participate to a five-day, full-immersion course, including a) lectures on key current issues in the field; b) an intensive course on the longitudinal analysis of the SHARE database (including hands-on practical work); c) the opportunity to present their work and have it discussed by leading scholars in the field.

Applications have to be sent by email (mito.school@unimi.it) by January, the 31st, and will include a) an abstract of the paper that will be presented (up to 500 words); b) a short summary of PhD thesis project or of current research (up to 3 pages); c) a brief cv (one page). Priority in admission will be given to students from Institutions that belong to the ECSR. Admission to the School is free of charge. Admitted students will be provided with hotel accommodation, all lunches and the social dinner. Other dinners and travel expenses to and from Turin will not be covered.
