Understanding economic development is one of the key challenges of our lifetime. We live in a world of tremendous inequality in the distribution of income and wealth; People live in extreme poverty, poor health and insufficient educational opportunities are a daily reality for the many. Yet recent decades have also shown that economic development and poverty reduction are possible.

The challenge for development economics is to understand the drivers of successful economic development in some parts of the world as well as to analyze the conditions responsible for stagnation and regress in others. This includes macroeconomic issues such as trade, capital flows, migration and aid, as well as microeconomic issues such as poorly functioning labour, land, technologies, inputs, credit and insurance markets; cross-cutting issues such as gender inequality, health, environment, or conflict are also critical to understand.
