The U.S. manages foreign assistance programs in more than 100 countries around the world through 20 different U.S. government agencies. These agencies, such as the United States Agency for International Development  (USAID), fund and organize programs with the aim to promote global security, sustainable societies, poverty reduction and economic growth. They are often employed in regions that are underdeveloped or have experienced conflict. How effective are these programs, particularly in regions working to resolve or recover from conflict? What lessons can be applied to future programs?


Join the WAC-DC as we host Jade Wu, author of Flash Points: Lessons Learned and Not Learned in Malawi, Kosovo, Iraq, and Afghanistan, to discuss these questions. Ms. Wu has worked on multiple US foreign assistance projects abroad and will share her experience, observations on personnel, language, cross-cultural challenges and gender dynamics as well as their impact on policy intentions.
