British Academy Grant for Karol Mazur

31 March 2021

Trinity Junior Research Fellow Karol Mazur has won funding for his research from the British Academy.

As part of the British Academy/Leverhulme Small Grant programme, Dr Mazur will be funded for two years to support his research on a series of interrelated projects investigating both micro- and macroeconomic consequences of agricultural policies pursued in developing countries. These include the impacts of the Farm Input Subsidy Programme in Malawi or formalizing land rights in Ghana.

Dr Mazur says of the grant: ‘I was extremely pleased to receive the BA/Leverhulme Small Research Grant for the next two years. It will support my research in an emerging field of macro-development, integrating macroeconomic theoretical models with micro datasets for answering development questions. This funding will allow me to hire a research assistant, visit or host my research collaborators, and present the ensuing work in international conferences.’
