Ole Dahl Rasmussen
MA in Political Science, specialization in international development and microfinance

Present employment (2010-12)
PhD-student in Economics, University of Southern Denmark. Advisor: Nikolaj Malchow-Møller
Microfinance Advisor at DanChurchAid, a Danish NGO. Chair of Danish Forum for Microfinance.

My research interests include:
– impact methodologies in microfinance
– microsavings
– social and financial performance of microfinance institutions

Previous experience
I have worked with microfinance in Thailand and Denmark through my company, Inclusive Finance Advice, taught the class “Poverty and Business – the case of microfinance” and University of Copenhagen, and done research

While doing my thesis I did some freelance journalism on microfinance, but also on a range of other issues (like the game of go, evolution and more). For example, I wrote on the issue in DJØF-bladet and did a documentary supported by the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (through DANIDA), together with my then girlfriend, now wife, Stine.

Previously I have worked part time at Consia Consultants begin_of_the_skype_highlighting     end_of_the_skype_highlighting, as an editor at the academic journal Politologiske Studier (now Tidsskriftet Politik) and been a part of – amongst other things – Lydkoret WHOP , Vokalkompagniet and International Debat. More links to stuff I’ve been doing can be found at my ClaimID site. A more detailed CV can be provided upon request.

    jeg har skrevet til dig tidligere (tak fordi jeg måtte læse dit speciale)… som jeg skrev dengang, er jeg ved at skrive speciale i social antropologi om microfinance… Lige nu leder jeg efter nogle at snakke fagligt med. Kender du nogle gode blogs/diskussionsforums på nettet?

    Skal til at skrive opgave om mikronfinance, og ville derfor høre om jeg kunne få lov til at læse dit speciale. Det ville være en meget stor hjælp!

    Mvh. Alberte
