Moving Up A Gear: Can a free bike help a girl's education in northern India?

  • Author: International Growth Centre
  • Published: 2012

The IGC Bihar programme sponsored researchers, Karthik Muralidharan (University of California, San Diego) and Nishith Prakash (University of Connecticut), to investigate the effect of providing every schoolgirl aged 14 in Bihar with money to buy a bike.

This short film presents a concise example of how impact evaluations can influence policy. It is also an influencing tool in itself and serves to broaden the influence of the research.
