About Stefania Galli

My research interests lie in the fields of inequality, demography, development and trade in the African colonies. 
The aim of my PhD project is to contribute to the literature on living standards and inequality in the colonial world and in African more specifically. The project examines various aspects of social stratifications in the Colony of Sierra Leone in its early days of foundation. That consents to assess to which extent the Colony was funded on principle of fairness and equality as claimed by the British colonizers. The project, developed as a compilation of papers, has a dual focus. On the one hand, I analyze resource allocation in an African colonial context. That is done at the household level, with the aim of quantifying the level of inequality in global comparison. On the other hand, I direct the attention towards examining social groups and social dynamics in a very heterogeneous and diverse colonial environment. I do so by analyzing occupational structure as a proxy for economic development on the one hand, and as class marker on the other. The last part of the project intends to examine the relationship between status and non-status indicators by employing marriage patterns.

I previously dealt with the effect of trade liberalization on GDP growth in post-colonial sub-saharan Africa and on wage compensation or European skilled workers relocating to Africa in the late 18th century.
