About this event:

The standard flagship conferences in development economics have largely and understandably reflected the trend in the profession by focusing mostly on programme evaluations and randomized controlled trials with little emphasis on the underlying mechanisms. This conference aims to fill the resulting gap by providing a platform for leading development economists from North America, Europe and the UK to present research that focuses on microeconomic foundations.

Maitreesh Ghatak is the organizer of this conference and the programme committee consists of him, Tim Besley, Greg Fischer and Gerard Padro i Miguel.

Miriam Sinn (email:, Tel: +44 (0)20 7852 3536), a PhD student in Economics, has agreed to be the coordinator for this conference.
