On January 29-30, 2024, the RITM will host the 2nd edition of the AFEDEV Doctoral Days in Development Economics, organized with the AFEDEV.

The AFEDEV doctoral days are an opportunity for doctoral students who just started their PhD to present in front of development economics experts, and to benefit from personalized feedback from two discussants: another doctoral student and an attending faculty member specialist in the field. It is also an opportunity to present (often for the first time) at a relatively small-scale workshop, and to exchange with PhD students and faculty from other research centers.

The event will include presentations and incorporate a social event in the form of a dinner. For this 2024 edition, 12 participants are expected, with as many faculty members. The call for papers is due to be released by the end of October. Björn Nilsson is in charge of the organization.
