WESSI offers assistance to researchers working with lab, field, lab-in-the-field, and survey experimental methodology. This workshop covers a broad range of substantive topics in the social sciences drawn from economics, political science, and sociology, with a particular focus on issues related to conducting experiments in the Middle East and the surrounding region. The workshop aims to give social science PhD students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior assistant professors the opportunity to present their research designs and works-in-progress, and to receive personal feedback from noted scholars in the field. Mentors also present their own research, giving researchers and students the opportunity to learn from their vast experience.
