Edward Miguel is a leading figure in development economics and innovator in four key research areas: (1) The use of randomized control trials and natural experiments to evaluate the impact of interventions, emphasizing general equilibrium and long-run effects as highlighted in his work on the impacts of deworming schoolchildren in Kenya. (2) The determinants and effects of civil conflict and civil war in developing countries, including the connection to climate change. (3) The use of pre-analysis plans to increase the credibility and transparency of empirical analysis in the social sciences. (4) The political economy of corruption and ethnic divisions.
