The Centre of Research in the Economics of Development (CRED) is devoted to studying problems of economic development, particularly issues of micro-institutions, collective action, market development, and political economics. Most of the research carried out in CRED is based on first-hand data collected by members in various countries of Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Works of both theoretical and empirical nature are regularly produced by the staff. The main themes of research around which works of the CRED articulate are the following: Institutions, Social Norms and Development; Aid, Governance, and Development; Poverty and Livelihood Strategies; Political Economics, Conflicts and Agrarian Relationship.
