This seminar analyses the question of missing women. How to measure women’s over mortality ? How many women’s deaths are taking place that could have been avoided ? We will read and present the main articles on the topic, before using a database on Indian states to construct our own measure of missing women.

The seminar is organized as follows:

  1. Presentation of the seminar
  2. Presentation of research articles by students
  3. Discussion about data issues encountered by students
  4. Discussion about data issues encountered by students
  5. Presentations of results by students

In addition, external speakers will be invited to the seminar. Those speakers are expert in development, who have followed a path representative of what students would follow after their master in development economics (PhD, worker in a NGO, worker for the government, working in an international organization etc…). These interventions will not be related to the them of the seminar, but will give the opportunity to master students to encounter individuals with a similar profile to theirs, but with several years of professional experience

Depending on the number of participants, the presentations will be made alone or in group
