Review for Cerge-Ei Foundation, Teaneck, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My first contact with CERGE was a decade ago. A Ukrainian working on her Phd there came back to Kiev on a research fellowship to the Economics Education and Research Consortium in Kiev (now the Kyiv School of Economics). It was clear from her experience that CERGE was doing cutting edge research, and that Ukraine would benefit from that research. This student subsequently got her Phd and is teaching at Charles University---the first of many Ukrainians to benefit from training at CERGE. So when I was invited to my first CERGE research conference, under the auspices of the Global Development Network, I jumped at the chance----and have never regretted it.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the last decade.
