BPI Advanced Poverty Research Methods training course held at the University of Cape Town

29 September 2022

During August 2022, the Bristol Poverty Institute organised a week of in-person Advanced Poverty Research Methods training at the University of Cape Town, South Africa.

Sessions were held on Global Policy Analysis using the harmonised WORLD data by Professor Jody Heymann (UCLA) and Amy Raub (University of Melbourne), Spatial Analyses by Professor Rich Harris (University of Bristol) and Universal Poverty Measurement by Professor David Gordon (University of Bristol).  In addition, BPI Manager Dr Lauren Winch ran a well-attended session on partnership opportunities to strengthen collaborations between University of Bristol and University of Cape Town staff and students.  

This training built upon the highly successful Advanced Poverty Research Methods courses for PhD students and ECR staff at the University of Bristol in 2019 and online across Latin America, Africa and Europe in 2021.  It also builds on a Group Fellowship at the Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study on Advancing Gender Equality in Africa and Globally: Strengthening Health and Economic Outcomes by Learning What Works at Scale and continuing collaborative research with the University of Cape Town on Transforming Social Inequalities Through Inclusive Climate Action (TSITICA) and on Socioeconomic-Related Inequalities in COVID-19 Vulnerability in South Africa
