Dominique van de Walle is a development economist who has built her career around the study of poverty and public policy. She spent close to 30 years at the World Bank, mainly in its research department, where she had an impact on the growing emphasis on poverty analysis and policy in the World Bank and the development world.

She has implemented rigorous impact evaluations and is widely published.
Chair of the PEP Board of Directors, Mustapha Nabli welcomes the incoming members. He said: “On behalf of PEP and the Board of Directors, I would like to welcome Hanan Morsy, Dominique van de Walle and Carol Newman to the PEP family; we hope they will find it stimulating and productive.
