ALI Bakhtawar


I am Bakhtawar ALI, I am a 2nd year PhD candidate at the Aix Marseille School of Economics (AMSE). I am interested in Development Economics, Political Economy, and Law and Economics. My research is focused on understanding the role of legal institutions on development. 

Before starting my PhD, I worked for the World Bank, Precision Development (PxD), and Centre for Economic Research in Pakistan (CERP). I helped in implementation and organization of various RCTs and policy evaluations. 

In my job market paper, using a regression discontinuity design I study how anti-corruption efforts can be manipulated to persecute political opponents and consolidate incumbent's power.
