Sandra Halvorsen travels to Ethiopia

The Choice Lab’s PhD student Sandra Halvorsen will be visiting the University of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, from 15th February to 15th May.

Halvorsen is working on the CMI-project "Women in the developmental state", which is an interdisciplinary investigation of the effects on women’s empowerment through employment in the textile manufacturing industry in Ethiopia. Using field and laboratory experiments, her research centers on intra-household dynamics and decision-making as a result of the wives’ employment.  During the three months of research stay at UAA, she will carry out lab-experiments on intra-household efficiency and cooperation using voluntary contribution mechanisms. This work is joint with The Choice Lab researcher Kjetil Bjorvatn.
