Favourite picture from the Pastoral study

Prateek favourite photo from the pastoral study. This photo is something which I could relate to. We could point out before going to the field how pastoral woman's work does not find itself within the women and work discourse but it was after understanding the relationship of women with animals, we could understand the nature of "work" which a pastoral woman does. 



My article in World Development Symposium

Dear friends,

World Development, the leading academic journal of development studies has published an Inaugural Symposium on RCTs in Development and Poverty Alleviation

under the leadership of its editor Arun Agarwal, to recognize the work and contributions of the joint winners of the 2019 Nobel prize for Economics - Abhijit Banerjee, Esther Duflo, and Michael Kremer.


Interestingly, the Symposium wanted to capture diverse voices either in support of or critical of experimental approaches, but based on scholarly reasoning and evidence including reflections on one’s own empirical work.


I took the opportunity to submit an article that represents a practitioner-evaluator viewpoint and discusses much of the work we evaluators are passionate about. World Development received 100 abstract submissions and finally accepted 52 submissions. The Symposium is amazing in the variety of perspectives and I am happy that my ‘voice’ was heard. I learned a lot regarding getting the abstract accepted and writing for this journal. I am convinced more than ever that we, evaluators, need to make bridges with other disciplines and sectors and learn to explain our craft better.


The World Development Symposium has articles from prominent thinkers so please do check it out. https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/world-development/special-iss...

Best wishes for the new year,
