How to get there


Each year, the winners of the annual “Reducing Urban Poverty” graduate student paper competition, co-hosted by IHC Global, the Wilson Center, USAID, the World Bank, and Cities Alliance, present their research findings in Washington, DC.

Prior to this years’ presentation at the Wilson Center, IHC Global will host a roundtable lunch with the competition winners and finalists at the Inter-American Development Bank for a conversation about field research. Competition winners and finalists will discuss how they were able to organize their field work and bring their projects to fruition, with a focus on practical challenges and issues specific to young scholars getting started in the field, such as making connections to facilitate interaction with communities and obtaining IRB approval.

Leading urban scholars and experts will join the competition winners and other young scholars for a conversation-style event to discuss the challenges and opportunities of field-based research and share advice on how to get started with planning and conducting field work.

Space is limited. Please RSVP to reserve a seat. Lunch will be provided. Email kkiefer@ihcglobal.org with any questions.
