Society for International Development World Congress 2011
DLP’s Director of Research, Adrian Leftwich, presented at one of the panels at the Triennial World Congress of the Society for International Development (SID), in Washington DC between the 29th-31st July 2011. The panel was entitled “Looking Forward: Pathways toward Inclusion through Political Change” and his presentation was on ‘Beyond and below Institutions: organizations, politics and leadership’. The theme of this year’s congress was “Our Common Challenge: A World Moving toward a Sustainable Future” and the event brought together professionals from diverse sectors and constituencies to debate critical ideas, policies and practices and to shape future development thinking and policy. The congress took place in the context of what Daniel Runde, President of SID, describes as “a shift in the market of ODA with changes in roles and performances of the traditional donor countries, a change in the definition of global South, and a new understanding of the central role that the private sector plays.”
