Organizations I work with


In October and November 2011, I taught a new Master's course on the Economics of Conflict at the Pakistan Institute of Development Economics (PIDE), Islamabad, Pakistan.  This course is the fruit of cooperation between PIDE and the Centre on Conflict Development and Peacebuilding (CCDP) at the Graduate Institute.  The syllabus of this interdisciplinary course (only the first part is mine) is here.

A good deal of my research in Senegal over the years has been made possible through my strong links with the Université Gaston Berger in Saint Louis, Senegal.

In Morocco, I work with a great team of people from the Observatoire national du développement humain (ONDH)

Some of my research on HIV/AIDS in Senegal has been made possible thanks to collaborative efforts with the World Bank's Development IMpact Evaluation (DIME) initiative.
