FOR 756: Vulnerability to poverty and dynamics of poverty in Southeast Asia

The overall objective of the proposed DFG research unit is to advance theoretically and empirically the concept and the methodology of measuring vulnerability to poverty in the economic and political context of emerging economies in Southeast Asia. This objective will be reached through interdisciplinary economic research that is based on the establishment and analysis of a wide-ranging, joint database collected from rural households, firms and regional stakeholders in provinces in Thailand and Vietnam that border their common Indochina neighbors, i.e. Laos and Cambodia. The cross-sectional database will be complemented by panel data and secondary data from household surveys and provincial statistics.
