What is BREAD?

BREAD is a non-profit organization, founded in 2002, dedicated to encourage research and scholarship in development economics. Our main activities are conferences and a working paper series.

Working Papers

BREAD publishes a working paper series authored by fellows of BREAD. They are academic papers in development economics.


BREAD organizes conferences on development economics with a focus on micro-economic issues. If you are a non-BREAD member and would like to receive conference-related notifications, please email BREAD@lse.ac.uk to be added to the conference mailing list.
