Abstracts of current studies - the World Bank research program 1997 (English)

This volume reports on research projects initiated, under way, or completed in fiscal 1997 (July 1, 1996 through June 30, 1997). The abstracts in the volume describe for each project: the questions addressed; the analytical methods used; the findings to date; and their policy implications. Each abstract also identifies the expected completion date, the research team, and any reports or publications produced. The abstracts cover 214 research projects from throughout the Bank, grouped under nine major headings: poverty and social welfare; labor markets and education; environmentally sustainable development; infrastructure and urban development; macroeconomics; international economies; domestic finance and capital markets; transition economies; and private sector development and public sector management.
