Poster session: Think development - Think WIDER
During the course of the last two work programmes, over 100 students have been part of our PhD programmes, utilizing the resources and facilities at UNU-WIDER for their PhD dissertation or thesis. Many have gone on to forge successful careers in academia, international organizations, policy circles and beyond.
For the poster session, we have invited previous participants to showcase their latest research. This will take place in the afternoon on 14 September between 15:45-16:30 in the lobby of the conference venue; the posters will also be displayed throughout the duration of the conference.
During the poster session on 14 September, the author of each poster will stand by their poster and be available to answer questions and discuss their study.
Presentations will be informal in nature, you are welcome to walk around and familiarize yourself with the topics being presented.
