“Overall the internship was a great experience and I believe it will contribute much to my future career. In a broader perspective, the research is important for policy makers and development specialists to find out how people access public goods in order to secure effective implementation of, for example, policies or foreign aid projects. I am very happy to have contributed to creating and disseminating that knowledge.”
“Future interns should expect a high pace at GLD and the expectation of your work is that it should always be of good quality. The program management makes sure that the internship is a two-way deal, and that the interns are getting the kinds of experience/knowledge that they are here for.”
“It is truly a great team that I’ve got to work with. The team is hardworking, ambitious and professional and at the same time there is always an easygoing atmosphere at GLD.”
“The internship has been an exciting time that has provided me with great insights into a research program that is expanding continuously and it has given me valuable experience in the area of governance and local development and quantitative research in general.”
