Exposure Dialogue Programmes

Exposure Dialogue Programmes (EDPs) allow researchers and practitioners from a wide range of fields to experience firsthand the challenges workers in informal employment face.

Guests live and work alongside their hosts for a period of days. After the exposure, both guests and hosts reflect on the experience. Guests then engage in a structured dialogue on a relevant topic such as informality and labour markets or informality and law. Afterward, they are asked to write their personal reflections and technical notes.
