WIDER Seminar Series

© UNU-WIDERThe 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.

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.
