Working Group in African Political Economy (WGAPE) Fall 2008


The Working Group in African Political Economy (WGAPE - pronounced "wah-gah-pay") brings together faculty and advanced graduate students in Economics and Political Science who combine field research experience in Africa with training in political economy methods. Since 2002, the group has met semi-annually to discuss the work-in-progress of its core members and invited guests. It is co-led by Daniel Posner (Department of Political Science, MIT) and Edward Miguel (Department of Economics, UC Berkeley).
