10-06-2016 | Workshop on "Measuring Trust and Social Capital"
The Department is pleased to be hosting with the OECD a one-day workshop of the High Level Expert Group (HLEG)on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress.
The OECD-hosted HLEG on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress was established to push forward the work of the Stiglitz-Sen-Fitoussi (SSF) Commission, particularly in domains where the SSF Commission only scratched the surface of important but complex domains of individual well-being and social performance.
The workshop will focus in particular on the following four topics:
• How best to measure social capital and social skills across countries
• Alternative measures of trust in institutions and trust in others, beyond surveys
• Determinants of trust in institutions, trust in others, social skills
• Impacts of trust and social capital on well-being
The preparation of this agenda has been led by Martine DURAND (OECD) and Yann ALGAN (SciencesPo).
The event is held with the financial support of the European Research Council under the European Community’s Horizon H2020 Programme (H2020-ERC-2014-CoG Grant Agreement n° 647870) for Yann Algan's ERC project SOWELL.
