The 2011 Summer School will take place from the 3rd to the 9th of July at the Venice International University campus on the Island of San Servolo, in Venice, located just in front of St. Mark's Square. The theme of this Summer School is Developments in Resource Economics.

The summer school will be of interest for students who have a thorough understanding of the classic natural resource theory, and who would like to make their own contribution in various topics rooted in resource economics.

In the recent past, resource economics has been strongly advanced in studies related to the economics of energy, including the pricing of oil, coal and other fossil fuels, the effect of environmental policies on energy prices, and the economics of clean energy alternatives.

The lectures will cover several key issues in the field, including:

  • strategic relationships in resource markets helping to understand the effect of demand-side policies on supply-side behavior;
  • effect of endogenous development of resource-saving and backstop technologies on growth perspectives for resource-dependent economies;
  • development of institutions that create new natural resources, such as pollution permits, fish quota, electricity spot markets in countries rich in hydro electricity supply;
  • new bioeconomics of fisheries and forests
