The Policy Research Talks showcase cutting-edge research from the World Bank and its implications for development policy.
The monthly event facilitates a dialogue between development researchers and practitioners to challenge and contribute to the development community's intellectual climate and re-examine conventional wisdom in current development theories and practice.
The Policy Research Talks are on hiatus for July and August 2019. Please check back later for our fall lineup of speakers!
The Development Research Group is the World Bank's principal research department. With its cross-cutting expertise on a broad range of topics and countries, the department is one of the most influential centers of development research in the world.
