World Bank studies

June 2010 - present

 

World Bank Studies present the results of economic, financial, or technical research; country experience or analysis; operational evaluations; or detailed background or case studies. These are finished studies, published rapidly to communicate the results of the Bank's work on economic and sector issues with policy makers and the development community. These studies tend to be highly focused on issues of operational interest in a country or region, sometimes across regions. They tend to range between 96 and 256 pages in length.

 

This series replaces the World Bank Country Studies series.
