VoxDev, a platform for research-based analysis and commentary in development economics, that is funded by the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR), the International Growth Centre (IGC), and the Private Enterprise Development in Low Income Countries programme (PEDL), is celebrating its sixth anniversary since its founding. On this occasion, VoxDev's editor-in-chief, Tavneet Suri, is announcing her departure and the appointment of a new editorial board.
With Tavneet's departure, a bigger board will work together to run and manage the platform. IGC Research Programme Director Chris Woodruff and IGC Director Robin Burgess will stay on the editorial board for the next months to transition and grow the new board. This process starts off with Michael Callen (IGC Research Programme Director for State Effectiveness), Stefano Caria (IGC Lead Academic), Namrata Kala, and Robert Darko Osei joining the board.
In the past six years, VoxDev has published 698 columns, 122 videos, 195 podcasts and six VoxDevLits, and featured about 1350 different contributing authors. During this time, the platform has had over two million page views, from over 930,000 different people across the world. There are also an additional eight VoxDevLits in the works that should be released over the next year, along with many ongoing updates to the existing VoxDevLits.
