Young Scholars Conference 2020

The Private Enterprise Development in Low-Income Countries (PEDL) programme pursues a research agenda that aims to better understand what determines the strength of market forces driving efficiency in low-income countries (LICs).

The PEDL programme hosted a two-day virtual conference focused on PhD candidates and young scholars. Presenters were no more than three years out of their PhD. The conference was open to any paper on firms in lower-income countries, though we particularly encouraged submissions from PEDL-funded projects.

The Young Scholars Conference overlapped with the PEDL Young Scholars Matchmaking Workshop 2020. An application to present at the Conference did not preclude an application to the Young Scholars Workshop 2020 or vice versa.
