A Reading List from Our Careers in International Development Hangout

If you were online for our Google Hangout on Careers in International Development this week, or if you’re just catching up after watching a recording of the session we posted earlier, you might find this reading list helpful.

Suggested by our AUA Director, Ben Orbach, here’s a short list of books to check out if you’re interested in making international development your career path.

  • Dead Aid by Dambisa Moyo, provides an insightful critique of international aid practices in Africa.
  • The End of Poverty by Jeffery Sachs, describes the state of global economic inequality.
  • The White Man’s Burden by William Easterly, chronicles and critiques the failures of Western nations to address the root causes of poverty in developing countries.
