A new Sociology of Development Policy Brief is out! Volume 4, Issue 3 (2019) is “The Organized Hypocrisy of Development Funding: Maternal Mortality Changes in Sub-Saharan Africa” by Jamie M. Sommer (University of South Florida), John M. Shandra (State University of New York at Stony Brook), Michael Restivo (State University of New York at Geneseo), and Holly E. Reed (Queens College, City of New York).
Also, here is a message from our Policy Brief editor Alaka Basu:
The plan now is to have one brief out every month, so I welcome expressions of interest. While I am open to any ideas you have, your pitch should ideally include a reference to something you have published on the subject, so that we can assume a base level of peer reviewing of the material.
