Fragility and Aid-What Works? New York, NY, USA

The UNU and UNU-WIDER event on ‘Fragility and Aid - What Works?’ on 25 October 2013, at the Permanent Mission of Germany to the UN, draws on research from UNU-WIDER’s diverse global network with the aim of providing an opportunity for discussion of the issue of fragility and how the core challenges it poses can be addressed by the international development community in the post-2015 world.

The discussions will be framed by presentations by leading experts, including Professors Lant Pritchett, Michael Woolcock, Fotini Christia, and Ken Menkhaus, among others. The meeting is intended to create an occasion for frank reflection and exchange on the topic of the day. Sessions will be moderated by development specialists, including UNU Rector David Malone and ASG at the UN Sarah Cliffe.
