The lack of information about the sharing of mining resource rent between governments and investors is an easy statement to make for Africa. The existing datasets are often insufficient for a deep analysis of African tax law as applied to the natural resource sectors, which has limited the academic and operational approaches.

mai 2017 Local and consistent centrality measures in parameterized networks Vianney DEQUIEDT, Yves ZENOU

Wepropose an axiomatic approach to characterize centrality measures for which the centrality of an agent is recursively related to the centralities of the agents she is connected to. This includes the Katz–Bonacich and the eigenvector centrality. The core of our argument hinges on the power of the consistency axiom, which relates the properties of the […]

Achieving the Sustainable Development Goal on poverty eradication requires focusing on agriculture and rural areas. Increasing technology adoption in staple food agriculture—the Green Revolution—will however not suffice. Key is to manage an agricultural and a rural transformation whereby farming systems become more diversified and a rural non-farm economy emerges to complement agricultural sources of income […]

mai 2017 Does Decentralization Facilitate Access to Poverty-Related Services? Evidence from Benin Emilie CALDEIRA, Martial FOUCAULT, Grégoire ROTA-GRAZIOSI

We study the effect of decentralization on the access to some poverty-related public services in Benin. Compiling panel data from local governments’ accounts and from surveys on 18,000 Beninese households performed in 2006 and 2007, our study suggests that decentralization has a positive overall effect on access to basic services. However, this effect appears to […]
