Correlates and likely causes for the decline in poverty in Nepal

Correlates and likely causes for the decline in poverty in Nepal

LECTURE: Open lecture by Dr. Magnus Hatlebakk, Senior Researcher at Chr. Michelsen Institute.

23 May 2014 (13:30-14:30) | UiB Global, Bergen, Norway

Dr. Hatlebakk studies household level poverty traps that may result from inferior positions in the rural labor and credit markets. He applies game theory as well as quantitative and qualitative empirical methods to understand the relatively complex economic- and social interactions between landlords and the less wealthy households within village economies.

More recently, his research has developed into a focus on economic and social exclusion, in particular bonded labor and caste-based discrimination, as well as analysis of the civil conflicts in Nepal.

Hatlebakk is also involved in research on nutritional demand among the poor, and the quality of rural health services.
