CFSP member Christopher Woodruff was chosen to guide a £15 million research initiative funded by the Centre for Economic Policy Research in partnership with the Department for International Development.  The initiative, entitled "Private Enterprise Development in Low-Income Countries," seeks to understand how market forces in developing countries interact to impede private-sector efficiency.  Abhinay Muthoo, chairman of the University of Warwick Department of Economics, where Woodruff is on the faculty, offered his congratulations on the appointment. He remarked, "This undertaking is sure to shed new light on the possibilities for sustained private-sector growth in developing countries."
