Instrumental variables play a key role in applied economics for identification and estimation in models with endogenous explanatory variables. While parametric models are commonly used in applications, economic theory and a priori knowledge are often insufficient for the justification of a parametric specification. This conference features recent research on instrumental variables in nonparametric models, which do not rely on potentially incorrect parametric specifications.
