Special Workshops

Through Special Workshops, AERC explores in depth selected topical issues within a relatively short period of time. The approach provides a mechanism for generating research products based on previous AERC investments and/or collaboration with other networks and research institutions with expertise in the topics in question. The results are expected to be authoritative, but readily and quickly disseminated to inform policy.

By June 2003, AERC had conducted Special Workshops on:

  • Foreign Exchange Markets and Exchange Rate Policies in Sub-Saharan Africa
  • Policies for Manufacturing Competitiveness in Sub-Saharan Africa
  • Quality of African Data
  • CFA Country Economies
  • Post-Conflict Economies
  • Foreign Direct Investment in Africa

The selection criteria for researcher participation in Special Workshops are similar to those for collaborative research projects.
