Event details

--> RSVP to this event


The Growth Lab's Development Talks is a series of conversations with policymakers and academics working in international development. The seminar provides a platform for practitioners and researchers to discuss both the practice of development and analytical work centered on policy.

Prof. Dercon's latest book, Gambling on Development: Why some countries win and others lose, draws on his academic research as well as his policy experience across three decades and 40-odd countries, exploring why some countries have managed to settle on elite bargains favoring growth and development, and others did not. 

The webinar will be moderated by Clement Brenot, Research Manager at the Growth Lab.
