The Role of Private Philanthropic Actors in International Relief and Development:
What Have We Learned from Existing Research?
ARNOVA Colloquy Submission
Foreign aid from private sources is changing the landscape of international development assistance. The Hudson Institute's Index of Global Philanthropy and Remittances found that in 2008 U.S. private philanthropy to the developing world amounted to $37 billion, eclipsing U.S. government official development assistance (ODA) by $10 billion. As the U.S. government becomes a minority shareholder in the field of foreign assistance and public private partnerships grow in importance, it is critical to understand the size and scope of the private actors and to explore the challenges and opportunities that the new landscape presents to the delivery of international relief and development.
The proposed colloquy would bring together the leading experts on data collection in the field of private giving from the U.S. to developing countries.
To lay the groundwork for a robust discussion on the future of private philanthropic actors and international relief and development, the colloquy would begin with an overview of what we know about the field. Proposed presenters and the focus of their individual presentations are as follows:
Carol C Adelman, Senior Fellow and Director of the Center for Global Prosperity, Hudson Institute
Una Osili, Associate Professor of Economics and Director of Research, The Center on Philanthropy, Indiana University
Timothy Triplett, Research Methodologist, Urban Institute
Tom Pollak, Senior Research Associate and Assistant Director, Urban Institute
After their prepared comments, panelist's will discuss the future prospects for remittances, charitable contributions, government funding, private voluntary organizations, corporations and foundations in the field of international relief and development. Questions to be addressed could include:
