Participation: Guiding Value or Empty Buzzword?
During Professor Levinger’s recent sabbatical, she worked with 14 international organizations in 16 different contexts and countries. The one thread that bound this set of amazingly diverse experiences together is that each organization claimed to embrace participation as a value that guided their work. Her talk will explore the very diverse meanings that organizations attach to the term “participation,” and what this means for the future of development work.
All are welcome.
When: Tuesday, September 30, 2014 from 12:15 – 1:45 PM

The project: the USAID-funded Financial Sector Development in Iraq. Her mission: to develop a curriculum for training the country’s future bankers. The process involved extensive discussions with business faculty, Central Bank staff, and the leaders of the Federation of Iraqi Private Banks. The topics of discussion ranged from privatization of the banking sector to anti-money laundering reforms. At the center of all this was Professor Moyara Ruehsen, living and working in an environment where security considerations factored into every decision, and every outreach effort.
Join us to hear the stories Professor Ruehsen is ready to share.
