New Techniques in Development Economics

I’m co-organising a conference today and tomorrow on “New Techniques in Development Economics” (program and location details here), including some of my favourite development economists from outside Australia (including but not limited to Chris Blattman, Leigh Linden, Seema Jayachandran, Dean Karlan, and Steve Stillman). For some background on the kinds of “new techniques” we’re discussing, check out this article in the Economist, and this recent conference at the Brookings Institution.

Policymakers (including those who don’t do development) are welcome to drop in to Friday’s 3.30-5pm roundtable on “the economics, ethics and politics of randomised trials”.
