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.

This year, the series hosted Zhongxia Jin. Jin was Executive Director for China at the International Monetary Fund and former Director-General of the Research Institute for the People's Bank of China. In the spring semester, we hosted Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, the first female finance minister of Nigeria and former managing director of the World Bank.  Okonjo-Iweala currently serves as Chairman of the Board of the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) and the African Risk Capacity Agency Governing Board.  The series is co-organized by the Duke Center for International Development (DCID) at the Sanford School of Public Policy, and the Duke University Center for International and Global Studies (DUCIGS).
