The financial aid from developed countries to the developing world is often seen as charity, while developed countries are committed to contributing a small percentage of their GDP to the poor countries, this financial aid is rather the right of those poor countries. The discussion will also focus on the importance of donor relations and good understanding of international affairs to maximize the benefits of those transfers to the developing world. The importance of expatriate experts and advisors to alleviate capacity deficiency in developing countries, and how they can most effectively play their role, will also be discussed.

This lecture, sponsored by the School of International Affairs and the Center for Global Studies, is free and open to the public.
