“Poverty Action Lab @10,” JPAL, Cambridge, MA

Join the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab in celebrating its 10th Anniversary. Over the past decade we have grown from a single office to a global network of researchers whose 400+ projects span 55 countries. We are marking the occasion with a day-long series of short talks, videos, and panel discussions from researchers, policymakers, staff, and partners.

We will hear of surprising results discovered, key lessons learned, some incredible adventures from the field, and the hard road to evidence-based policy in development. Speakers will include Abhijit Banerjee, Rukmini Banerji, Esther Duflo, Amy Finkelstein, Michael Greenstone, Martin Hirsch, Dean Karlan, Felipe Kast, Michael Kremer, Alan Krueger, Trevor Manuel, Benjamin Olken, Rafael Reif, and many others.
