International development: The NGO-military relationship

March 21, 2014

CSU's Office of International Programs will present a program on the relationship between non-government organizations and the U.S. military in the development of international development.

The event, set for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in Room 228 at the Lory Student Center, features George Scharffenberger, program director for the master’s in development practice at UC Berkeley, and Maj. Daren C. Harrison, U.S. Army Veterinary Corps. CSU's International Development Studies Program is co-sponsoring the event.

The speakers will provide an overview of the history of international development since World War II, discuss how practicing international development has changed since the 1970s, and examine the U.S. military’s involvement in development over the past few decades. Steve Leisz, assistant professor of geography in CSU’s Department of Anthropology, will serve as moderator.
