Global Poverty: Research Themes

Introduction to Problem Spaces Research

For research sources for topics for this class, please pull down one of the relevant "sub-tabs" above.

Rather than deciding on a project or intervention and then discovering there is no literature about it, investigate background sources first (books, international flagship publications, etc) to get ideas and a sense of the research terrain.   

See if you can pinpoint key issues or major interventions being discussed.  If you find a project but cannot find any relevant literature about it you may be able to locate information about something similar - perhaps on a related issue or in another country.  

We have a TON of international development reports in our Oskicat catalog.  This is because we get records from intergovernmental organizations added directly, including publications from the World Bank, OECD, IMF. US Government, Government of Canada, and many more organizations.
