WESSI 2016 is designed to provide training for social science graduate students and junior faculty in experimental methods, broadly defined (lab, field, lab-in-the-field, biological, and survey experiments will be covered). The 2016 Institute includes special sessions on the issues and concerns of conducting experiments in Africa, the Middle East, and the surrounding region. Students at the Institute will be given the opportunity to receive personal feedback on their own research, through presentations and from meeting individually with faculty.

The WESSI Alumni Workshop at NYU Florence was the first in a series of occasional workshops for WESSI Alumni. The workshops will gave WESSI Alumni the chance to receive feedback on their research and research designs from noted scholars in experimental social science and from each other. Research using labs, labs in the field, survey experiments, and field experiments were discussed. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
