In their new paper, Markus Goldstein and co-authors examine the effects of land title registration in Rwanda using a national-level randomized control trial. They concluded that the program resulted in a significant shift of labor from agriculture to non-farm enterprises and wage work, with an improvement in welfare.

This paper is co-authored with Daniel Ali, Eliana La Ferrara and Klaus Deininger.
