Leading voices in international development will be joining the Stimson Center for a roundtable to discuss and identify opportunities, challenges, and policy recommendations for U.S. engagement with “legacy countries” – middle income countries where there are interests and opportunities to enhance strong ties with the U.S. after bilateral aid ends (or is sharply reduced). The roundtable will offer varying perspectives on how to maintain and enhance mutual interest with legacy countries through higher education, health, science and technology, civil society, and cultural relationships.
WHAT: An on-the-record roundtable examining the opportunities for the U.S. to enhance ties with legacy countries. A light breakfast will be served.
WHERE: The Stimson Center, 1211 Connecticut Avenue, NW, 8th Floor, Washington DC, 20036
