The World Bank will host a panel discussion to launch the volume INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT: Ideas, Experience, and Prospects, on November 20th, 2014.

The implementation of international development is complex, dialectic and evolving. Over the 50 years, ideas on international development have changed as the solutions proposed to address problems in poor countries have met with mixed results on the ground. Taking a comparative perspective, the panel will review the history of thinking on trade, foreign aid, growth, social protection, and inclusion, and the prospects going forward for each of these as a means of ‘achieving’ development. The launch at the World Bank follows the release by Oxford University Press in spring 2014.

Moderator: Indermit Gill  (Director, Development Policy, World Bank)
