Foreign aid has played an critical role in improving health, education, and the overall development of low and middle-come countries. Development assistance is not, however, without its challenges or critics. The generosity of outsiders is sometimes misplaced when local cultures are misunderstood, local industries and initiatives are displaced, or avarice and corruption worm their way into the equation. Join us for a panel discussion on the good, bad and everything in between of foreign aid with keynote speaker Rear Adm.Tim Ziemer, U.S. Global Malaria Coordinator. This event is sponsored by the BU Program on Crisis Response and Reporting, an interdisciplinary collaboration between the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, College of Communication, School of Public Health, and the CGHD.
