Rachel Kleinfeld, Senior Associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, will talk about her recent research on how countries facing severe violence or corruption improved – and what those empirical findings mean for theories of change and interventions in complex environments.
The lunch meeting will explore the challenges of Security and Rule of Law programming, including: How we can develop more impactful interventions? How can we enable accountability while allowing for learning and flexibility? How can we spur virtuous cycles when vicious cycles are prevalent? And how can we design activities that can be finished and measured in 3-5 years when change may take 50 years to reach fruition?
