An interdisciplinary perspective is key to grasp the changing landscape of development economics.
We aim to provide credible research to monitor inequalities and access to opportunities in low- and middle-income countries. We also look at new countries and philanthropic actors, which are playing an increasingly important role in driving investments to fund the next years of development around the world. Our work investigates the different actors, macroeconomic dynamics, local cleavages and social changes that contribute to the distribution of wealth and opportunities across the world. Enhancing awareness of new trends and resilient barriers, our work investigates development economics from an unbiased perspective.
Specific areas of competence include: labour policies, informal economy, corporate social responsibility, taxation, distribution and redistribution, inequalities, foreign aid, South-South Cooperation, blended finance, private-public partnership, development economics, China and development, Belt and Road Initiatives.
