  1. 1. Another Lunatic Line? An Economic Evaluation of the Standard Gauge Railway in Kenya

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Nationalekonomiska institutionen

    Författare :Hedda Most; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Transportation Infrastructure; Railways; Kenya; Differences-in-Differences; Income; Economic Growth; Business and Economics;

    Sammanfattning : This research paper seeks to examine the emerging role of transportation infrastructure on economic activity in low-income countries due to its vital part in facilitating deeper integration of markets, hence fostering inclusive growth and prosperity for the poor. Although its economic causal framework suggests ambiguous results, transportation investments account for the largest share of the World Bank's lending to developing countries. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Political Information & Ethnic Voting : A study on the impact of political information on ethnic voting behavior in Africa

    Kandidat-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Författare :Adina Martin; [2021]
    Nyckelord :ethnic voting; Kenya; Africa; political information; voting behaviour; voting behavior; informational shortcuts; ethnic cues; ethnic heuristics; Conroy-Krutz;

    Sammanfattning : ​Does political information lower the incidence of ethnic voting in Africa? Even though a significant amount of research has been dedicated to African ethnic voting behaviour,​not much capacity has been dedicated to studying the function of ethnic cues as informational shortcuts. Considering voters use cognitive shortcuts like party affiliations or ideology when making decisions, it is also plausible that voters in elections characterized by ethnic voting use demographic cues in lieu of more comprehensive information.

  5. 5. Modelling gross primary production in semi-arid regions: effects on carbon uptake of intensive agriculture in southern Kenya

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

Africa plays a prominent role in the global C cycle, though our understanding of GPP dynamics is largely hampered by a paucity of ground-based observations. LÄS MER
