Presentations from aid evaluation conference online

Following up on my post below on Prof Easterly's talk, a number of the presentations from the conference, entitled "What Would The Poor Say: Debates In Aid Evaluation", are available here, on Easterly's Aid Watch blog. Besides his own, I found the talks by Lant Pritchett and Ross Levine to be of most potential relevance from a GAL perspective - the former on, inter aliam, the dangers of deriving policy decisions from technocratic research, the latter on the perverse incentive structures that (may) distort the policies of major aid agencies such as the World Bank - and if I have time I may blog on them in a little more detail later. But they are all worth a look.
