This blog is a space for students to share their thoughts and experiences related to the world of Development Economics and the mission of the Laboratory for Effective Anti-poverty Policies (LEAP).

LEAP was created by a group of faculty members at Bocconi University and affiliated researchers who specialize in applied research in development economics and in particular in the areas of agriculture, education, family, finance, health, labor markets, media and institutions. The mission of LEAP is to understand and fight the causes of poverty by using rigorous evaluation methodologies and by providing reliable, evidence-based solutions to stakeholders in Italy and developing countries.
