Over the course of the semester, we are hosting several public policy webinars that each highlight a unique public policy issue followed by an open Q&A sessions.
These webinars are a great way to engage and connect with Canada’s #1 think tank as well as other policy experts and students who can share experience, and answer your questions.
The West has positioned itself as the protagonist of development, giving rise to a vast multi-billion dollar poverty industry — the business of doing good has never been better. Yet the results have been mixed, in some cases even catastrophic, and leaders in the developing world are growing increasingly vocal in calling for change. Drawing from over 200 interviews filmed in 20 countries, Poverty, Inc. unearths an uncomfortable side of charity we can no longer ignore. From TOMs Shoes to international adoptions, from solar panels to U.S. agricultural subsidies, the film challenges each of us to ask the tough question: Could I be part of the problem? Director-Producer, Dr. Michael Matheson Miller, runs us through some of his findings on the road to creating this award-winning documentary.
This webinar will include a 30-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute question and answer period where attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions directly to the presenter.
