The Centro Studi Luca d’Agliano (LdA) is a non profit research institution in the field of international and development economics based at Fondazione Luigi Einaudi in Torino and at the Department of Economics of the University of Milan. LdA, through a network of Italian and international institutions and researchers, promotes and carries out research programmes covering issues like foreign investments and diffusion of technologies, international trade and trade policy, migration and labour markets, household behaviour and rural institutions in developing countries. LdA also supports graduate students and post doctoral fellows working in its major fields of research.
Its aim is to favour a better understanding of the economic problems inherent to development and international economics. Particular emphasis is placed on giving students the opportunity to attend the best universities and so to come in contact with the most distinguished scholars in order that they may acquire a truly international perspective and an intellectual and broad minded approach to the problems of development and international economics.
