OPHI holds annual summer school on multidimensional poverty in Washington, D.C.

OPHI’s annual summer school on multidimensional poverty analysis was hosted at Georgetown University, Washington, D.C. from 3-15 August 2015.

67 people from more than 30 countries took part in the intensive two-week course, including researchers as well as policymakers and technical experts from government offices around the world.

The course was led by OPHI researchers and taught from OPHI’s recently published book, Multidimensional Poverty Measurement & Analysis. It aimed to provide participants with a thorough conceptual and technical introduction to techniques of measuring multidimensional poverty, with a strong emphasis on the Alkire Foster method.

Materials from the summer school, including videos and presentations, will be available on the OPHI website soon.
