CIC Halifax Branch: INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT IN A POST- PANDEMIC WORLD
June 4, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm ADT
The Atlantic Council for International Cooperation (ACIC) and the Canadian International Council (CIC) Halifax Branch will host an online panel discussion ‘International Development in a Post-Pandemic World’.
What will international development look like in a post-pandemic world?
How can Canada utilize its resources effectively to support sustainable economic and social development globally?
Is there a need to consider new approaches or to scale-up innovative models that will allow Canada to maximize its use of aid as a ‘soft power’ to support citizens, civil societies and governments through challenging times economically, politically and culturally?
Moderated by Colin Dodds (President Emeritus, Saint Mary’s University, CIC Halifax member)
Chris Eaton (Executive Direction, World University Service of Canada)
Fadi Al Qassar (Co-Founder and Executive Director, Venture 2 Impact)
Shelagh Savage (Advisory Council Chair, Royal Roads University and ACIC Board Member)
