Dr. Francisco H. G. Ferreira, Senior Economist, The World Bank will give a presentation titled "Equity and Development: The World Bank Challenge".

The presentation will be followed by a discussion.

The Development Circle is a group of University of Maryland School of Public Policy (SPP) students and faculty, formed in the Fall of 1997, that seeks to understand and promote just and sustainable development in both poor countries and rich, and in relation between the two. Of special concern are the ethical dimensions of development theory and practice. All faculty and students in SPP and throughout the University of Maryland, and those in the Washington area are invited to attend and participate in the bi-weekly seminars.

For the remainder of the semester (Fall 2005), the Development Circle seminars will be held in conjunction with the CISSM Forum. The sessions will meet on Thursdays from 12:15 - 1:30 pm in 1113 Van Munching Hall (Student/Community Lounge).

When available, written papers are distributed a week before the session. General discussion follows the guest speaker's 20-30 minute presentation. The International Development Ethics Association (IDEA), a membership association devoted to understanding and promoting ethics-oriented development, is a co-sponsor of the seminar series.
