How randomized control trials can make the world a better place

What programs and initiatives actually make a difference for integration, education and health? How do we know what works so we can put our effort and money where they are the most effective? That’s what Associate Professor Martina Björkman Nyqvist’s work is all about. Using a Nobel Price-winning method (randomized control trials) she is evaluating social inclusion programs such as Kompis Sverige (Buddy Sweden), education programs and health programs in India and a number of African countries. Together she and host Victor White discuss how research can contribute to a better world, and how to help without imposing your own culture and values on those you are trying to help.  

Topics: Development economics, health economics, public service delivery, and economics of education.
