About this Project

A collaborative effort with CSAE at Oxford University


From 2006 to 2009, we have conducted extensive fieldwork and household survey data in Cape Verde and Mozambique. These data included detailed modules, namely on household migration histories, education, demand for political accountability or new business formation. With these information, we have produced research on topics such as the brain drain vs. brain gain debate; the impact of emigration on the demand for political accountability; or the impact of migration on new business formation.
