The Revolution in Impact Evaluation in Development Print
Thursday, 28 October 2010, 12:30 - 17:00

Since a few years the field of development economics in general and impact evaluation in particular has been revolutionized by a series of high-profile methodological advances. This revolution, spearheaded by Esther Duflo (MIT), Michael Kremer (Harvard) and Edward Miguel (UC Berkeley), among others has wide-ranging implications for development practicioners, economists and policy makers.

These new methods of impact evaluation are today widely practiced by leading international donors and NGO’s such as the World Bank, IFPRI, IRC, CARE etc. During this half day workshop several development economists will present key aspects of these new methods and will illustrate their power with case studies. A panel will reflect on the chances and limitations of this approach in development policy and practice.
