Rajesh Tandon keynote address on India’s development

April 4, 2012

Rajesh Tandon

As I mentioned below, I was at a fascinating workshop this past weekend at the University of Iowa.  The keynote address was by Rajesh Tandon, founder and President of the Society for Participatory Research in Asia (PRIA), “an international centre for learning and promotion of participation and democratic governance.”

Rajesh gave an inspiring address about the state of affairs in development in India today, problems of government accountability and corruption, and the incredible need for diaspora philanthropy – particularly to support capacity-building and democratic accountability.  PRIA has done some fascinating research that Rajesh presented in his keynote.

I encourage all of you to watch the keynote address here.
