The developer’s dilemma — collaborating researchers

A key output of the The developer's dilemma project will be an edited volume on the relationship between structural transformation, inequality, and inclusive growth. Bringing together empirical research and analysis from leading international scholars, it distils wide-ranging insights from a global survey and case studies from low- and middle-income countries —including Brazil and Chile from Latin America, Ghana and South Africa from sub-Saharan Africa, Bangladesh and India from South Asia, and China, Indonesia and Thailand from East and South-East Asia.
