WIDER Seminar Series
The WIDER Seminar Series showcases the latest research on key topics in development economics. At the weekly sessions, early-career and senior researchers present recent and ongoing work related to UNU-WIDER’s current work programme.
In addition to providing a forum for both academic debate and training, the series presents an opportunity for local policy makers and others interested in development to learn about the latest research methods and findings.
The programme for 2019 features, in addition to UNU-WIDER researchers, notable guest speakers, including a presentation from James A. Robinson, University of Chicago, on business and fragility in Africa; Ashwini Deshpande, Delhi University on women's participation in the labour force; and Maurizio Bussolo presenting a new World Bank Report.
The Seminar Series events take place on Wednesdays from 15:00-16:00 at UNU-WIDER unless indicated with an asterisks. Seminars will be live streamed on Facebook and recordings and presentations will be available after the event here. For more information email: email@example.com
