Webinar series in Finance and Development

Our speaker series brings together junior scholars working on finance topics in developing countries. For the last three years, we have served as a forum for open discussion designed specifically for early stage work.

Seminars take place the second and fourth Monday of every month at 5pm Central European Time / 11 am Eastern Time on Zoom.

Our Mission

We launched WEFIDEV in early 2020 to support junior researchers in sharing their early stage work when meeting in-person was impossible.

Now, as we enter our third year, we look forward to continuing to build this community and provide a forum for productive discussion.
