Adam K. Kaloides, Crisis, Stabilization, Governance Advisor to the USAID Office of East African Affairs

Since the formation of a new government in September of 2012, Somalia has made significant progress. USAID is working to increase stability and reduce the appeal of extremism in Somalia with efforts that are fostering good governance, raising confidence in government, promoting economic recovery and growth, improving health and education, offering skills and hope for youth, and building respect for diversity and inclusion. The talk will give an overview of programs in: Peace and Security, Promotion of Democracy and Good Governance, Improvement of Education, and Support for Economic Growth.

The Conflict, Security, and Development Series is co-presented by the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at NYU Law School, the Center for Global Affairs at NYU’s School for Continuing and Professional Studies, NYU’s Global Institute for Public Health, and the Office of International Programs at NYU Wagner.

Each Tuesday, this series will examine new research, discuss creative policy approaches and highlight recent analytical and practical innovations in responding to the challenges of security and development in the context of conflict and post-conflict situations.
