Center for Strategic Communication

There is significant verbiage devoted to international development. Should development be primarily centered on capacity building for states or an increase in human capabilities? What does success look like? How should success be measured? Are publicly funded programs more effective than those orchestrated by private partners? What is the role of business in human development?

There is no shortage of answers to these important questions and while vigorous debate is always welcome, an informed perspective is key. Below is a list of additional resources on international development generally. The list will be updated throughout the summer. Suggestions are encouraged and should be directed to Maggie Feldman-Piltch at or @MaggieCaroline1
