 Details of key papers and books produced by our researchers.

The 2012 research assessment notes that this group has a high ranking (4.5 on a scale of 1 to 5)

 for relevance, especially due to its applied policy-related research. Their approach helps to establish       evidence-based policy formulation and implementation.(..) A positive aspect of its work is that within the field of development economics members have established themselves in a niche of their own.

 In this sense EDEM research is directly linked to societal relevance, but staff and PhD students build on that research and also use it for advocacy and as a basis for policy advice. Contributions aimed at a large public appeared on and in: vox.eu, FXB Papers: Harvard School of Public Health, FXB Center for Health and Human Rights, Me Judice, ESB, OneWorld, The Broker, IOB Antwerp papers, festival Zwarte Cross, and UNU WIDER angle. Of particular interest is Rolph van der Hoeven’s contribution to Jolly, R, et all. Be outraged: there are alternatives. S.l.: Richard Jolly. Mansoob Murshed appeared in a number of blogs on topical issues in conflict.

Importantly, EDEM was very much involved in the formation of the new development cum trade policy of the Dutch government. Rolph van der Hoeven provided Testimony on the draft Dutch Government paper on development policy, in a hearing of the Second Chamber, The Hague. Peter van Bergeijk was a member of the external advisory board for this paper. Rolph van der Hoeven co-organized a conference On the Future of ODA at the premises of ISS. As in 2012 Rolph van der Hoeven continued to play a leading role in the international debate on the future of MDGs.

Peter van Bergeijk gave a Key note speech on the AIV Annual Day 2013 on global financial system “Two tales of global (financial) governance” and provided Testimony on economic diplomacy in a hearing of the Second Chamber of Parliament.

Many Dutch language publications and interviews (Human (tv), EenVandaag (tv), Dit is de Dag (radio), Volkskrant, NRC, NRC next, Vice versa, Nederlands Dagblad, BNR nieuwsradio, Erasmus Magazine, BZblad) could be reported under this heading.
