Ethiopia WIDE website launched
21 March 2016
Mokoro have launched the website of the Ethiopia WIDE project. WIDE is an ongoing longitudinal study of twenty rural communities in Ethiopia which began in 1994. Subsequent rounds of fieldwork were carried out in 2003 and in three stages between early 2010 and late 2013. The website is designed to be a publicly accessible repository for all the WIDE data, publications and workshop and conference presentations. More will be added to the website over the next few months.
The communities have been viewed as complex and open social systems on trajectories through time. The data has been made, interpreted and analysed using case-based techniques from sociology and social anthropology. We would like anyone who uses our data for publication to acknowledge the WIDE project, provide a link to the database, and send us a copy of the publication.
