Dupraz Yannick

CNRS Researcher


I am a Research Assistant Professor (Chargé de Recherche) at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) based at Paris Dauphine University. I am also a CAGE Research Associate and an Associated Researcher at INED

My research interests are economic history and development economics. My research focuses on understanding the long-run processes of economic development, cultural and political change. I am more specifically interested in education policies, nation and state building in developing countries, especially in Africa. I am also interested in social mobility and internal migration. My work often involves the creation of novel large datasets from historical archives or the precise geolocation of administrative data, and the study of historical shocks or "natural experiments".
