Presentation:

In the past two decades there has been a tremendous increase in the use of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in development economics. Trials ranging from school interventions to health provisions, from minimal information campaigns to large subsidies to farmers. As evidence and data are cumulated on specific policies it becomes easier to combine such exogenous variations with more theoretically grounded work.

In this workshop, we seek to put together a methodologically diverse group of researchers to explore how RCTs can be fruitfully used to explore synergies between reduced form and structural work and, more generally, to advance our understanding of economic theory and policy.
