This year, RBA launched the book “Income Inequality Trends in sub-Saharan Africa,” a thorough documentation of inequality levels and trends in the region in order to better understand the slow and varying rate of poverty reduction. It proposes hypotheses to account for this experience and draws relevant lessons that could help accelerate reduction in income disparities.

During his/her internship, the selected candidate may also be tasked with helping raise awareness of other RBA publications, including the UNDP 2016 Africa Human Development Report and Least Developed Countries (LDC) Report.
