As the Jackson Institute’s first director, Professor Levinsohn brings a wealth of international experience to that post. His fields of interest include international economics, industrial organization, economic development and applied econometrics. Recently, he has studied the impact of HIV/AIDS on unemployment and school attendance in South Africa. Professor Levinsohn has lived and worked in Senegal, Botswana, and South Africa. One of his projects, now in its 11th year, trains government officials, university faculty and students, and NGO staff from over a dozen countries in southern Africa on how to use data to inform policymaking. We talk with Professor Levinsohn about the new Jackson Institute for Global Affairs.
