Additional Information: Development, it is increasingly understood, is more than solely an economic matter. There is now growing acknowledgement that governance and human and social development goals have to be integrated for an inclusive approach. Economic calculations are obviously vital to planning development and assessing its results. But so are human factors; how political and social factors affect development efforts and how people’s lives are affected by development projects. Thus, as important as things like macroeconomic management and changed in GDP and annual income are, this year’s conference will focus on the human aspect of development.
Target Audience: Undergraduate Students,  Graduate Students,  Faculty
