The 4th EMPIRICAL MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE was held on December 7-8, 2017 at the World Bank HQ in DC.

This year our program included applied and empirical research papers in both the private and the social sector, including education and health, covering a range of topics in this area. It was a great event – if you did not have the chance to join us, the videos of the presentations will be available on the World Bank’s EMC page over the next few weeks.
