At CREB we place great emphasis on building research networks and linkages with researchers within and outside the country to produce high quality research with a meaningful policy impact. To achieve this end, CREB brings together academics, practitioners and policy makers to engage in public debate on important policy issues in economic development through international conferences, seminars and workshops.  In this connection, a flagship event of the Centre is the International Conference on Applied Development Economics (ADE) held in Fall every year. The conference highlights recent research from developing countries focusing on economic development and poverty alleviation. CREB also hosts monthly seminars to expose faculty to cutting-edge research and thinking by inviting leading economists and international researchers to talk about their ongoing research. It also organizes workshops to develop skills of its staff, especially early career researchers. Along with hosting conferences, seminars and workshops, CREB also disseminates its research through publishing working papers, policy papers, briefs, newspaper articles and blogs.
