John Mitchell Economics of Poverty Lab

The Lab is run out of the CBE Research School of Economics (RSE) and is a response to an urgent need to take the vast literature of economic theory related to poverty and translate it into real-world policies and outcomes. Established using financial support from the National Institutes Grant in concert with a generous donation from ANU Alumnus John Mitchell, the Lab will use economic field experiments to understand human capital formation and, in doing so, inform evidence-based policy development around the globe.


The ANU John Mitchell Economics of Poverty Lab is proudly delivering an eWorkshop on Field Experiments from 10-12 June 2020.

The basic objective of this workshop is to help with the training of current and potential doctoral students soon to graduate from Australian institutions, by giving them the opportunity to gain feedback on and exposure to research using experimental methods. It also enables students to meet with their peers and to make contact with senior academics and researchers with similar interests.
