Georgetown Hosts Forum on Global Philanthropy
February 27, 2012
Georgetown’s Center for Public and Nonprofit Leadership, part of Georgetown’s Public Policy Institute, hosts the Waldemar A. Nielsen Issue Forum in Philanthropy each year in order create a public dialogue on philanthropy’s impact in an ever-changing world.
This year’s issue forum, Public Problems, Private Money: Can Global Philanthropy Make the Right Kind of Difference in Today’s World?, brings together recognized leaders in global philanthropy, development and human rights to discuss the opportunities and obstacles that philanthropy brings to public policy. When does private capital make a difference? Does philanthropy support, change or undercut the public sector’s responsibilities? Do private funds reinforce democracy or obstruct democratic decision-making?
These experts will consider the complicated and changing relationships between public problems and private money. Kavita Ramdas, who has had a prominent role in the debate over these issues, will be the keynote speaker.
