We describe a simple method for making inference on a functional of a multivariate distribution, based on its copula representation. We make use of an approximate Bayesian Monte Carlo algorithm, where the proposed values of the functional of interest are weighted in terms of their Bayesian exponentially tilted empirical likelihood. This method is particularly useful when the “true” likelihood function associated with the working model is too costly to evaluate or when the working model is only partially specified.
