Theme 2 Workshop 2022

STEG Theme Workshop Series 2022

at 13:00 BST, London

Each of the six STEG Themes will host online workshops in September 2022. These workshops will play a role in helping to share knowledge of the current research frontier and in identifying open research questions.

This workshop aimed at bringing together leading economists in macro and micro development to discuss the linkages between home production, market work, and structural transformation in the development process.
