Yoonjei Dong (2017 Ph.D. – DP)’s research paper “Recalling extra data: A replication study of finding missing markets”, co-written with Benjamin Wood, Senior Evaluation Specialist of World Bank’s Research Group DIME, was accepted by the Journal of Development Studies. The paper examines data on cash-crop based development strategies to re-evaluate its effectiveness as a development strategy. Miss Dong, who wrote the paper as a DIME consultant along with Benjamin Wood, will soon be the first ever KDIS doctoral course student to have a research paper published in an SSCI journal. We at KDIS are thrilled to have a brilliant student such as her bring recognition to our school, and we look forward to Yoonjei DONG’s bigger success in the future, both academically and career-wise.
