Tuesday, March 5, 2013 - 6:15pm - 8:15pm
Columbia University Morningside Campus The Heyman Center, Second Floor Common Room

This talk will consider both the evolution of development thinking and its underlying  rationale, exploring how changes in development facts, in thinking, and in policy are related.  It will focus particularly on the analysis of human-oriented approaches including Redistribution with Growth, Basic Needs,  Capabilities,   Human Development, and the MDGs exploring their similarities and differences, and discussing how far they have changed policy and practice.
