Washington’s premier international affairs universities and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) are partnering to host a series of conversations on pressing development issues for Asia and the world, to be hosted in turn by each university, but open to the participation of faculty and students from the other universities. The goal of the conversations is to promote open debate on critical development issues. The participating universities, listed in alphabetical order, are: the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, the Elliott School of International Affairs at The George Washington University, the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University, and the School of International Service at American University.
ADB has worked since 1967 in 44 countries of Asia and the Pacific to eliminate poverty and improve lives by promoting inclusive and sustainable growth through loans, grants, and technical assistance. Through its operations, it has accumulated considerable experience about what works and what doesn’t in promoting development, and has analyzed policies and issues vital to Asia’s future.
