Jose Cuesta ()

International Journal of Development and Conflict, 2018, vol. 8, issue 2, 80-84

Abstract: The handful of existing rigorous impact evaluations of cash transfers in humanitarian settings underscore that high-quality impactful research can be done in the direst contexts. But much more needs to be done to truly shape programing in conflict-related emergency settings. Addressing the research-programing divide may save lives in such contexts.
