New article on acceptance of Randomised Controlled Trials for the evaluation of the CAP


Ulrich Morawetz and Christoph Tribl

Our article “Randomised Controlled Trials for the Evaluation of the CAP: Empirical Evidence about Acceptance by Farmers” has been published in the latest issue of the “German Journal of Agricultural Economics”.

The article is available from the Journal’s webpage
