The Cost of Politics in Malawi

November 26th, 2019

A recent survey by WFD, Michigan State University (United States), Aarhus University (Denmark) and the Institute for Policy Interaction (Malawi) studied the costs of seeking and holding parliamentary office in Malawi.

The study follows WFD’s previous research on the cost of politics.
