Economic and social interactions often take place through a network - a collection of individuals together with a structure of pairwise connections between them. This year’s Summer School will be devoted to the theory of networks. Aside from presenting the basic theoretical ideas, the School will also include econometric and experimental work and applications to finance and development, among other fields.
