UNU-WIDER launches inaugural Massive Open Online Course

September 7, 2019

Based on a decade of research by UNU-WIDER, in partnership with the Brookings Institute, the new UNU-WIDER Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) seeks to help answer three main questions:

  1. Why is there so little industry in Africa?
  2. Does it matter? 
  3. Is there something we can do about it?

Beginning on 9 September, the 4-week course with John Page, senior researcher at UNU-WIDER and the Brookings Institution, outlines how industrial policy designed for the 21st century could support a broader set of economic activities and provide the growth, jobs and industrialization needed in Africa.
