Panel 4: IDG Foundation to Future

With the evolution of international development in the last several decades, how are these changes are being reflected in the way that development scholars and practitioners are educated.  This panel brings together DUSP doctoral alums who are currently professors in urban planning and international development departments in top ranking US universities. These alums will reflect on their experience at DUSP, discuss if and how the field has evolved over the years.  What are some of the primary debates, challenges, and innovations being identified in the field and in their work?  How are practitioners being prepared to address multi-scalar development challenges?  In light of the previous panel discussions, are there major gaps that are not being adequately addressed or need to be addressed in more deeply interdisciplinary ways?
