The economic impact of Italian colonial investments in Libya and in the Horn of Africa, 1920-2000

The generous support of the EHS allowed me to complete my thesis and to expand my research during the last year of my PhD. The Olga Crisp bursary also gave me the time and the financial freedom to fully concentrate on the job market, to undertake a new co-authored project on Mesopotamia, and to write the last chapter of my dissertation. One of my articles is now at the second R&R stage with the Journal of Economic Geography, and I will join Nuffield College at the University of Oxford from September 2019. All this would not have been possible without the support of the EHS.
