Event Details:

COVID-19 has made the world poorer. If it means more aid is needed, will wealthy nations heed the call for more aid? What is the role of aid versus investment and trade policy? Where should aid be focused in the future? The Stanford King Center on Global Development will host a conversation with two experts on the future of aid as part of the center's ongoing Speaker Series. 

The event will feature

  • Rachel Glennerster, chief economist at the United Kingdom’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) and

  • Nancy Birdsall, president emeritus and a senior fellow at the Center for Global Development.

The conversation will be moderated by Jeremy Weinstein, professor of political science and a King Center faculty affiliate. 

The Stanford King Center on Global Development Speaker Series features talks by distinguished scholars and policymakers. The goal of the series is to foster discussion about successes and challenges in the field of poverty alleviation and development.
