PPE goes India!

PPE goes India!
Twenty PPE students of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam will be going this June to Mumbai to participate in the PPE Spring School, together with twenty students selected from universities in India. The event is jointly organized by John Stuart Mill College and the Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research (IGIDR) in Mumbai. It is organized for the third time and this year’s topic is ‘Rationality and Choice’. The programme consists of three courses:

1. ‘The Economics of Human Flourishing: Utility, Happiness, and Capabilities’ by Paul Anand (The Open University; University of Oxford)

2. ‘Experiments in Economics and Philosophy: Surprises, Lessons, Implications’ by Kai Spiekermann (London School of Economics)

3. ‘Social Choice Theory: Economics, Ethics and Politics’ by Martin van Hees (John Stuart Mill College; VU Amsterdam)

During the week our students will have the opportunity to attend these lectures and live and work together with the Indian students on the IGIDR campus. The IGIDR is one the partner institutes of the John Stuart Mill College.
