DeReCK’s third workshop: ‘Microeconomic Approaches to Development Economics’

This hybrid workshop, hosted by The Development Economics Research Centre at Kent, meets for the third time this June.

The Development Economics Research Centre at Kent (DeReCK) will host a research workshop on “Microeconomic Approaches to Development Economics” on 13-14 June.

This will be the third iteration of the workshop series at Kent and the centre’s first in-person workshop since it’s formal inception in September 2020.

‘This year’s workshop is designed to consolidate links with the centre’s first cohort of external research fellows appointed in 2021 as well as facilitate exchanges with the wider community of researchers on global development challenges.’ Dr Zaki Wahhaj, Co-Director of DeReCK explained ‘It will also include participation of non-academic stakeholders to provide policy-related discussions on the research presented at the workshop, and inform key stakeholders about the policy implications of this research.’

The workshop will include research presentations on a range of development topics including agriculture, climate change and political economy, women’s education, child marriage, sanitation, devolution and conflict.
