J‑PAL Europe

J-PAL Europe, based at the Paris School of Economics, leads J-PAL’s work in Europe and francophone Africa. J-PAL Europe conducts randomized evaluations, builds partnerships for evidence-informed policymaking, and helps partners scale up effective programs.

J-PAL Europe provides courses, trainings, and customized workshops on the use of randomized evaluations. We recently launched a fundraising campaign in support of a J-PAL initiative on social inclusion, answering some of the most pressing questions in Europe today related to migrant inclusion and education. In francophone Africa, partnerships with the governments of Burkina Faso and Côte d’Ivoire support evidence-informed policymaking in the region, including a pilot of the Teaching at the Right Level approach to primary education.

There are 50 ongoing and completed randomized evaluations in 15 countries in Europe.
