Research Activities


As the World Bank focuses on capacity building in developing countries to carry out effective socioeconomic development, the JJ/WBGSP is an invaluable resource for building skills and imparting competences that are necessary to prosper in the highly interconnected and competitive global economy.

Knowledge and training of JJ/WBGSP scholars are integral part of the Program's avenues to help in human resources developing and capacity building. It is a major contribution to the sustainable economic development of these countries and the key element for success in the fight against poverty.

It is important for the Program and our audience to be aware of the contributions made by JJ/WBGSP scholars to the resolution of the current issues in developing countries.

To help disseminate knowledge internationally JJ/WBGSP is inviting JJ/WBGSP scholars to present the abstracts on their Master/Ph.D thesis (up to 35-40 lines with 62-64 characters per line) to jjwbgsp@worldbank.orgto have it published on the JJ/WBGSP website.
