I lead this collaborative project involving multiple scholars and institutions in the United States, India, Kenya, Uganda and Peru. Our primary research focuses on pathways into and out of poverty and utilizes a specialized methodology to understand poverty from the perspective of the poor themselves. The method, developed after extensive field investigations in India and Kenya, is discussed in the ‘Methodology’ link in terms of the steps that are followed. On this site you will find published and working papers generated from these investigations. Additional investigations are currently being planned. Your comments and suggestions are particularly welcome in this regard, for they will help serve more than an academic purpose.
