SDV/DEC Social Science and Policy Seminar Series (FY10)


The Social Development Department (SDV) and the Development Research Group (DECRG) have joined hands to organize a new bi-weekly seminar series.  The aim of this series is to supplement the many research seminars in economics at the Bank by featuring the best scholarly work in the non-economic social sciences -- critical, empirically engaged research in anthropology, sociology, philosophy and political science that has implications for development thought and policy.


If you would like to be included in periodic announcements for this seminar series please send an email to Paulina Maribel Flewitt (
