In this episode of VoxDevTalks, Deniz Sanin joins us to discuss new research on the gendered effects of the government-induced rapid expansion of the coffee mills in Rwanda during the 2000s. Deniz first outlines the data and methodology used to observe how the opening of a mill affects coffee farmers who reside in its catchment area, before delving into her results on how and why domestic violence decreases in areas with a new mill.
