The Impact of Good Intentions: Telling the Story of Foreign Aid in the 21st Century

Foreign aid has played a critical role in improving health, education, and the overall development of low and middle-income countries. Development assistance is not, however, without its challenges or critics. Join us for a panel discussion on the good, bad and everything in between of foreign aid. BU Program on Crisis Response & Reporting will host a master class on March 1 providing analysis and information on global health, international journalism, foreign aid and the efforts that BU is making to create an international newsroom. The keynote speaker will be Rear Admiral Timothy Ziemer of the United States Navy (retired). Adm. Ziemer is the U.S. Global Malaria Coordinator. There will be a Q&A after his presentation. This event will be held in the School of Public Health. The BU Program on Crisis Response & Reporting is a partnership combining the expertise of the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting in Washington, D.C. and the Boston University College of Communication, School of Public Health, and Center for Global Health & Development.
