The fourth installment of the Spring 2010 GSIPM Dean’s Seminar Series will take place Thursday, May 13th from 12:15 – 1:45 pm in McGowan 100.

Dr. Maha Baimyrzaeva will present her research on “Shortcomings of Institutional Reform in Public Sector Governance: The Case of Kyrgyzstan.” This talk will analyze leading donors’ common approaches to promoting administrative reforms in developing countries and discusses alternative approaches based on a new set of theoretical tools on institutions and institutional changes.  The reforms’ shortcomings and potential solutions are discussed in the example of Kyrgyzstan’s case.  The increased recognition of the importance of effective public sector institutions in international development in view of the poor track record of donor-promoted reforms underscores the importance of this study.  The talk also sheds light on the most recent public uprising in Kyrgyzstan.

The Dean’s Seminar Series showcases the work of the GSIPM faculty that defines academic excellence at the Monterey Institute, highlights distinct competences of the GSIPM programs, and provides valuable perspectives and skills to our learning community. The series places an emphasis on the introduction of faculty members and their works that have a significant potential to be leveraged across the family of programs at GSIPM.
