André Leliveld

André Leliveld is a development economist. He has done a number of research projects on informal insurance, social protection and community-based (health) insurance schemes in Africa, particularly in Togo, Uganda and Swaziland. His current research project in this field is a study of the effects of community-based health insurance in Togo on the economic well-being and health status of participants. He was also involved in several studies for CNV international on trade unionism in a selected number of African countries. Currently, he participates in the INCLUDE/NWO funded research programme on the political leverage of informal workers associations in Benin and Ghana.

Since 2013 his main research focuses on the role of (frugal) innovations and technologies in economic transformation and development in African economies, with a focus on East Africa. This interest evolved from his earlier participation in the research project Tracking Development, in which the development trajectories of four African and four Asian countries were compared.

Since 2014 André Leliveld is Associate Director of the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre for Frugal Innovation in Africa.

Keywords: (Frugal) Innovation, community based health insurance, labour movements, trade unions.
