Book presentation: 'Why Global Development is Succeeding'

Meeting CodeWIPO/ECON/DEV/GE/14
Date and venueMarch 26, 2014 (Geneva, Switzerland)

The prevailing picture of the developing world is one of hardship and even despair. But is such an image still accurate? In his riveting new book, economist and global development expert Charles Kenny argues that successes and progress are much more widespread than many of us believe. And understanding this positive transformation is the key to achieving even more.

Join Mr. Kenny at WIPO (Room AB 13.1) on March 26 at 13:30, when he will present findings from this book – as well as from another of his books “The Upside of Down: Why the Rise of the Rest is Good for the West” – and take questions from the audience.
