All panels will take place in the GISB Auditorium unless otherwise noted.
Visions of Development, the inaugural Tobias Center conference, will gather scholars, policymakers, practitioners, and NGOs in the School of Global and International Studies auditorium for two days of focused discussion and critical reflection on policy and research related to international development. Panels will also include lessons learned from fifteen years of U.S. nation-building in Afghanistan as well as expert discussion on the main research clusters of the Tobias Center: measuring development; private investment for development; climate change and the environment, and development; and global public health. By bringing together key stakeholders in development study and practice, conference participants will develop an agenda for collaborative research, best practices, and outreach in these areas moving forward.
