Research Highlights 2006

Research Highlights 2006 (published in June 2007) is the second of the resumed series of annual reports on the research activity of the Development Research Group (DECRG), the World Bank’s principal research unit. The report

  • offers a brief account of the activities of the group during 2006 and an external evaluation of Bank research between 1998 and 2005
  • highlights recent work to illustrate the scope and nature of the research, and
  • provides a comprehensive list of publications and new datasets made available in 2006.

The selected research highlights and list of publications reflects our engagement with wider audiences through formal publication, as well as the breadth and quality of the research program, which ranges from data (e.g., on World Trade Organization Disputes) and analytical tools (e.g., for poverty analysis) to detailed micro evaluations (e.g., of cash incentives for girls education), and broad macro analysis (e.g., of tropical forests and of aggregate economic volatility).
