About Jean-Benoît Falisse

I am a cross-breed development economist and my main research interest is in the provision of basic social services (health-care, education, justice) in so-called ‘fragile’ contexts. My approach uses mixed qualitative and quantitative methods, including field experiments (impact evaluation). Prior to my PhD, I was working for the United Nations and international NGOs. I have continued advising international and local organisations since.
