IFMR and Inclusion Economics at Yale University announce collaboration for Policy Research

The Institute for Financial Management and Research (IFMR) and Inclusion Economics at Yale University signed a memorandum of understanding to conduct policy-engaged research that promotes inclusive economies and societies.

The collaboration will focus on innovative data collection, cutting-edge research, close engagement with policymakers, and communication of data-driven insights to inform and encourage evidence-based dialogues on economic and social inclusion. Inclusion Economics India Centre, housed at IFMR, will be a close collaborator in this important endeavour, and Krea University will provide strategic oversight, according to a communication from the company.

The collaboration was announced at an event  at Jacaranda Hall in India Habitat Centre, New Delhi. 
The event was followed in the evening by Inclusion Economics India Centre’s inaugural policy dialogue, “Mahamaari aur Auraton ki Aapbeeti” (Women, Ordeal & Opportunity through the Pandemic), which featured evidence-based insights from the group’s recent work on how the Covid-19 pandemic affected Indian women’s economic empowerment and well-being.
