Teaching and supervision

I have over the years lectured at a great variety of institutions and places around the world, including countries in both the North and the South and have supervised a large number of students at bachelors, masters and PhD level at the University of Copenhagen. The focus in my teaching has been and remains development economics and its diverse sub-components. I am not at present teaching on a regular basis at the Department of Economics at the University of Copenhagen due to my assignment as Director of UNU-WIDER.
