We are organizing the first of the two half-day events to read and review Professor Christopher Coyne's path-breaking text "Doing Bad by Doing Good" which questions many of the core assumptions of the aid industry and sheds new light on the development realities of contemporary Cambodia. The day will begin with a lecture by GMRC board member and Seattle Pacific University professor of Political Science and Director of Global Development Studies, Dr Bradley J. Murg. Following that, Dr. Murg will moderate an afternoon roundtable discussion of the text. Copies of the text will be provided to all participants (free of charge) by the Greater Mekong Research Center, in cooperation with the Institute of Humane Studies. This event is free and designed for graduate level students and early career development professionals.
Details as to the reading can be found here: all participants will be given a copy one to two weeks in advance, and expected to have completed the reading before the event. Find out more about the book by clicking here.
