Centered around the lessons of USAID's Equity and Growth Through Economic Research (EAGER) project, which sponsored research projects throughout Africa between 1996 and 2001, nine papers examine the contribution of research to policy making in Mali, Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, Ghana, and Uganda. Presented by Phillips (president of consulting firm International Business Initiatives) and Seck (executive director, Secretariat for Institutional Support for Economic Research in Africa), the primary focus of the study is on the efficacy of research in convincing governments to comply with neoliberal market-based reforms.
