Hi Eric,
He can also try our MA program, which could be a good opportunity to give him time to think about further study or looking for a job,  at University of Denver. Depending on his application package, he may even get paid Teaching Assistant position.  He can contact our development economics expert and current chair, Peter Ho ([log in to unmask]).
Good luck.

Hello Eric,

   If he is interested in a heterodox approach to development maybe he
should think about Canada.  In Europe all I can think of is seeing
where Ha Joon Chang is (he was at Cambridge). But, since he is from
Africa, maybe the SOAS, University of London, would be a better fit.

   If he wants an orthodox development program he can probably get a dart
board and throw somewhere and go.  It is going to be the same, which is
to say it will be about anything but development, even though it will
be labelled development.
