One of SALDRU’s post-doc fellows, Muna Shifa, recently returned from a 9-week stint at the University of Oxford. Muna was invited to visit Oxford University by the Centre for the Study of African Economies. Muna was struck by the growing trend in experimental research that she encountered during her stay at Oxford.
After more than 40 years of service, SALDRU’s founding director, Prof. Francis Wilson, will be leaving us to go into retirement. Francis has been a dynamic force in SALDRU whose research exemplifies courage and excellence. SALDRU hosted a cocktail party to bid farewell to Francis. We're pleased to share some photos and tweets from the function with you.
