"From Local to Global: Extrapolating Experiments"

NYU Wagner Associate Professor of Public Policy Rajeev Dahejia, an economist, has posted an original essay stimulated by the phenomenal growth of randomized control trials (RCTs) for impact evaluations in international development and aid interventions. As he writes –  for the International Growth Centre blog – “questions persist about what the results of an RCT in one context can tell us about the probable results of similar programme implemented in another context." We invite you to read and consider his blog entry.
