In its 9th Edition, the Talking Economics Digest focuses on ‘Migration and Development’, one of cross cutting and emerging thematic research areas at the IPS.

As usual the Digest also features articles by IPS researchers who are working on a diverse range of policy issues including poverty, agriculture, environment, health and education, international trade, etc. Some contributions to the Digest are based on recent publications, which are now available for purchase.

The ‘Talking Economics Digest’, published bi-annually, is a compilation of articles featured on the IPS Blog Talking Economics within a 6 month time period, together with new articles and special feature segments.

As we distribute only a limited number of printed copies of the Digest, we present here the latest e-version of it for you.
