Prospects for U.S. Global Development Leadership in the Trump Era
The arrival of the Trump administration has raised a myriad of questions about the prospects for continued U.S. global development leadership. Amid a 28 percent proposed cut to U.S. international affairs spending, might USAID be consolidated into the State Department? After the elimination of Obama’s Global Climate Change Initiative, will his other marquee development initiatives on food security (Feed the Future) and energy (Power Africa) survive? Are there any areas in which there might be room for bipartisan cooperation on global development?
Johns Hopkins SAIS is hosting an expert panel discussion on these and other critical questions.
Date: March 28, 2017
When: 12:30-2:00 PM
