PhD Defence

On Monday 10 June, Arne Nasgowitz defended his thesis for the PhD degree at NHH.

Essays on Poverty and Economic Development

Nasgowitz' thesis contained three chapters which examines the effect of time and capital constraints on women's labour, business development and households' transition out of poverty in the context of a developing country.

"I want to thank everyone at the department for the support over the last years, all the small conversations and nice moments. I learned a lot and it has also been a lot of fun. It is great to be part of such a supportive, diverse, and curious environment - always keep that," says Nasgowitz.
