  1. I would like to register for the lectures’ online streaming.

    Also, will the lectures be saved if the timing is too late/too early for some places?

  2. Great. Welcome to the course.
    I think that should be possible – to stream and record simultanously.
    If you want you can join Twitter – and follow me @mjerven and then you ask questions on twitter during lecture.

  3. I am a student from South Africa doing my Masters in Economics. I would love to be able to watch the lectures via live streaming. Would that be possible?

    1. Yes. We will start at Feb 6 at 12 pm CET. You will be able to ask questions live on twitter too. Check in for further details later.

      1. This is a brilliant initiative! Thank you so much for the opportunity to gain these insights. There will be a whole bunch of Masters students watching via live stream from here in South Africa!

    1. Thank you for your interest! I will be posting the details on how to follow the lectures online here in due time.

  4. I would love to attend the recording of the lectures. Live streaming might not be an ideal option for me (due to the week connectivity where I reside), but I will try and interact via twitter.

  5. I would also like to join in via livestream! I am currently studying International Development at the University of Amsterdam and will be writing my Master’s thesis proposal from next month onward, which will be closely related to the theme of this course. I will keep an eye on this website for the details about how to follow the lectures. Thanks!

  6. Hi! Thank you for the opportunity to join online. I am very much interested and look forward to receive more detail about the streaming etc.


    1. Great. I will be posting the details of the streaming and other things in the first week of february. The first lecture is on February 6th.

  7. Thank you for alerting me about this course. I would like to join the live stream and/or watch the recorded lectures.
