Ethnographic solutions to inequalities in South Asian Advice Ecosystems

Why advice?

"The provision of advice to people setting up small businesses –
microenterprises, family firms, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) – is an important yet rarely explored aspect of economic development in South Asia. Who provides advice? Who gets access and who is excluded? Is the advice provided actually useful?


Using an ethnographic approach, our project takes a closer look at the evolving 'landscapes of advice' in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka and using the insights gained, aims to work with our partners to build ideas that can inform more effective and inclusive modes of advising."
