Fall 2017 Warburg Lecture

Todd Moss, Senior Fellow, Center for Global Development, Washington D.C.

The Trump Administration has proposed major reductions to U.S. assistance programs around the world, along with massive cuts to both the State Department and USAID budgets. Does this mean America is ending its longstanding commitment to try to ease suffering and raise living standards in the world’s poorest countries? Join us for a Washington insider perspective and a discussion about the uncertain future of America’s role in international development.

Todd Moss is Senior Fellow at the Center for Global Development, a former senior State Department official responsible for African affairs, and author of the acclaimed African Development: Making Sense of the Issues and Actors. Moss also writes an international thriller series for Penguin’s Putnam Books about a State Department crisis manager including The Golden Hour  (2014), Minute Zero (2015), Ghosts of Havana (2016), and The Shadow List (2017).
