IMTFI Working Papers Series

The Institute for Money, Technology & Financial Inclusion (IMTFI) welcomes papers from any academic discipline related to its thematic foci for the IMTFI Working Paper Series. These foci include but are not confined to everyday uses and meanings of money, mainstream and alternative currencies, mobile money for poverty reduction, and new technological infrastructures to facilitate value storage, transfer, payment, and exchange. The Working Paper Series is multi and inter-disciplinary in character.

We invite submissions of unpublished papers reflecting relevant and recent work by academic and non-academic researchers whose research is focused on issues of money, technology, and financial inclusion in the developing world. The aim of the series is to provide a central site for dissemination of ongoing research to a global community of scholars and practitioners, with the aim of sharing ideas, encouraging constructive feedback, and fostering debate. Current or former IMTFI fellows are particularly encouraged to submit. Click on link to read Working Papers.
