Centre for the Study of African Economies - Seminars & Workshops

This series focuses on the work of The Centre for the Study of African Economies (CSAE) - an economic research centre within the Department of Economics at Oxford University. These short talks look at specific research topics within the CSAE and are aimed at people who are interested in learning more about African and other world Economies such as Latin America. CSAE researchers often use unique data which give them unrivaled insight into the underlying issues. The resulting policy recommendations address questions in the economic and political spheres as well as in civil society in developing countries.
