5. Assignments
Students are grouped into 7 groups. Each group must present an assigned paper and a paper which is selected by student. The presenter is primarily responsible for the papers being discussed, including formal presentation and responses to comments and questions. The presenter should not merely repeat what is written in the paper. Rather, the presenter should provide a brief summary, identify what is new, interesting or important of this paper, point out the weakness of the paper with regard to its theoretical foundation and empirical methods, and specify your own comments or suggestions on the papers.

Non-presenter students have to make a critical review on the assigned paper (2-3 pages). Each student is also required to write a formal research proposal (will be presented on the weeks 9-13). The proposal should specify the research question and the motivation for the research. It should also contain a review of the relevant literature, identify the theory/story and hypotheses to be examined, the research design, and data sources, and where possible provide some preliminary empirical results.
