Narayan Das is currently working on two research projects on Bangladesh: (1) Unlocking the door to migrants: An evaluation of BRAC’s Migrant Loan program, and (2) Reducing the risk of migration: An evaluation of BRAC Safe migration program. International labor migration from Bangladesh is one of the key driving forces of the economy of Bangladesh. Yet, evidence from a recent study co-authored with Narayan (titled “Migration as a risky enterprise: a diagnostic for Bangladesh”) shows that poor people’s attempts at migrating often result in failure with significant financial losses to them. Hence an impact evaluation study of these two BRAC programs, in which Narayan is involved as a BRAC employee, can have important implications for Bangladesh’s development through more pro-poor and safer migration. Narayan has extensive research experience in the fields of poverty, microfinance, labor market, agriculture, and other emerging issues related to Bangladesh.
