TVSEP - Thailand Vietnam Socio Economic Panel
Welcome to the homepage of the research project 'Poverty dynamics and sustainable development: A long-term panel project in Thailand and Vietnam, 2015 - 2024', financed by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) (Website).
The panel project uses the outcomes of DFG FOR 756 as a starting point. By continuing the panel database and by extending the survey, the project, in cooperation with selected research partners worldwide, enables and carries out research on long-term welfare dynamics, rural-urban migration, agricultural transformation and intergenerational aspects of households as well as on the long-term impacts of development interventions (read more).

Research visit fellowship
Dr. Priyanka Parvathi received a 6 months (October 2017 - March 2018) research visit fellowship from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft to the United States and collaborated with the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) at Washington DC as well as with Prof. Cristopher B. Barret and his STAARS project team at Cornell University, Ithaca. The research visit was focussed to comparatively analyze the much less known micro-scale changes within the farming sector that signal a transformation in Southeast Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. The TVSEP data as well as the LSMS-ISA data were used to gain insights on the patterns of transformation between the rural smallholders in Thailand and Vietnam with those in Uganda and Malawi. This study may have important implications for development interventions and agricultural projects in Asia and Africa to accelerate the process of transformation.
