Professor Narula to serve as a member of the Academic Assessor Group for ESRC-DFID
13 August 2014
The UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) are commissioning a dedicated programme of research to investigate in comparative perspective the economic development impact of China’s engagement in sub-Saharan Africa and critically evaluate what lessons China’s own economic development transformation can offer other developing countries – in particular in low-income Africa.
Professor Rajneesh Narula, of International Business and Strategy, has been invited by DFID and ESRC to serve as a member of the Academic Assessor Group for this programme. As part of this, Rajneesh will be asked to provide an assessment of up to ten proposals in his area of expertise; this will then be followed by a panel meeting in August 2014.
