IDE Research Columns


About IDE Research Columns

IDE Research Columns (IDERC) were launched in March 2022 to present research-based analysis in a short and accessible format. The columns cover economic, political, and social issues in developing countries and regions. As they typically conclude with recommendations based on empirical research, IDERC offers opportunities for policy discussions among academia and practitioners. IDERC is designed to complement more in-depth publications, such as journal articles, books, and discussion papers.
