Description:

Martha Wilfahrt researches the political economy of development, with a regional focus on Sub-Saharan Africa. Martha is currently working on a book manuscript, based on her dissertation, which looks at historical legacies of pre-colonial statehood on the contemporary politics of public goods delivery in rural West Africa.

Other ongoing work include a project on the role of traditional authorities and informal institutions in the 2014-15 Ebola response as well as a series of papers on central-local fiscal transfers in decentralized Senegal.

This is part of the Buffett Institute Faculty & Fellows Colloquium.
