Development Aid Effectiveness Working Group

The Development Aid Effectiveness Working Group is a multidisciplinary working group centered within the Elliott School's Institute for Global and International Studies that seeks to build a community of scholars, practitioners, and students who share interests in and expertise on important aspects of contemporary international development policy and practice.

The Development Aid Effectiveness Working Group will organize an occasional internal lunch seminar during which a member presents his/her current work; develop one or more public events each academic year; and engage with faculty, staff and students at GW and in the wider Washington, DC, community and beyond.

The Group is committed to bringing attention to critical policy issues related to aid effectiveness including design, implementation, and evaluation; and providing evidence about the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to effective development including attention to political, economic, social, and psychological factors in development.

Topics include: effectiveness of foreign aid for development; linkages between global and local politics and development; livelihoods, and poverty alleviation; gender, human rights, and social justice; and urbanization, population change, and the environment.
