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

With a network of affiliated professors based across Europe and beyond, we partner with governments and civil society actors to conduct rigorous impact evaluations of social programs in Europe. We also work with J-PAL offices around the globe to help inform the work of European development actors.
