In 2015 we spent 4 months working for Fabretto in N. Nicaragua. Áine researched the welfare of mothers with babies and James supported rural SME's and cooperatives.

JM&Co is now offering 2 new services: mentoring to UK startups and EFL training in S. Oxford and the Vale of  Aylesbury.

Land

From settlement in Darfur to national reform in Guyana, focussing on:  

Public Services

Taking Poverty Reduction Strategies through to Public Service Action, by combining:

Political Economy

'.. the success or failure of an aid programme is essentially related to aspects of political economy ..’  That lesson from Darfur in the 1980s has been at the centre of JM’s work ever since.

Aid Management

A systematic, tested approach to:

Citations  Despite the age of many of our publcations they are still being cited.

Our 1994 book about Darfur and Aid - The Poverty of Nations - was cited 5 times in 2015.

Already in 2016 the Poverty of Nations has been cited once more.  So has our paper Why We Will Never Learn  about the inconsistent incentive structures which undermine the monitoring and evaluation of Aid.
