Hi Anders,

Thanks for the comments. Yes, the absence of an IRB at the Bank has been a sore spot. Those of us doing field experiments rely on IRBs from collaborators institutions and those in the country the study is taking place. On non-experimental data collection, my LSMS colleagues can chime in, but I think that the argument has been that the WB teams are working with the counterpart countries' Stats offices and things are handled through their procedures for handling human subjects.
