Experts in development have too often unintentionally provided a rationale for oppressive autocrats and unenlightened US foreign policy in poor countries.”

IPID Leadership with Professor Laura Seay

IPID welcomed Professor Laura Seay from Colby College to the University of Minnesota. As part of her trip, Professor Seay gave a talk that was free and open to the public titled “You can’t always get what you want (or need): real-world development research.”
Professor Seay’s research is centered around the study of community responses to conflict and U.S. foreign policy in Africa’s Great Lakes region.  She is currently finishing a book, Substituting for the State, about the role non-state actors play in governing the eastern DRC in response to the Congolese state’s weakness in North Kivu, South Kivu, and Ituri.
