Caroline Lambert

Former Visiting Fellow


Caroline Lambert was a visiting fellow at the Center for Global Development. While a staff journalist for The Economist, she won several awards for her coverage of Southern Africa’s politics and business from Johannesburg. Her other assignments included being deputy Asia editor, and covering postconflict situations—and at times not so “post”—from Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Zimbabwe and Algeria, among others. Before becoming a journalist, she worked for the World Bank Group.  

More recently, she has been consulting and writing on economic and political analysis, postconflict and fragile economies, integrity, and political risk for the African Development Bank, the World Bank, Oxford Analytica and the Norwegian government. Caroline has co-written a book on cash transfers in oil-producing countries with CGD’s Todd Moss and Stephanie Majerowicz. She has also collaborated with visiting fellows Nuhu Ribadu, Nigeria’s former top official dealing with financial crime, and Tendai Biti, Zimbabwe’s former finance minister and opposition official.
