RETHINKING DEVELOPMENT SEMINAR SERIES
The Rethinking Development Seminar Series is a flagship program of the Duke Center for International Development (DCID) at the Sanford School of Public Policy. Starting this year, DCID has partnered with the Duke University Center for International and Global Studies (DUCIGS) to feature speakers with exciting new approaches to development. The speakers are well-known thinkers and development practitioners from large, emerging economies who will discuss topics from addressing global uncertainties in developing countries, to alternative approaches to planning mega-cities.
Our first speaker was Zhongxia Jin, the Executive Director for China at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and former Director-General of the Research Institute for the People's Bank of China.
Our next speaker in the series will be on Thursday, February 15th at 5:30 p.m. in Perkins 217 with:
