Devex Series On USAID History ‘Overlooks Some Important Issues’

Devex: USAID history and reform we can agree on
Andrew Natsios, former USAID administrator

“Devex has done a service for the development community by focusing attention on administrators of the U.S. Agency for International Development from the agency’s founding up to the present. The series, ‘USAID: A history of U.S. foreign aid,’ attempts to capture the complexity of international development and its place in American foreign policy. The greatest challenge in writing a series on such a broad subject is what to include and what to ignore. Understandably, space limitations meant the author, John Norris, could not include a comprehensive view of each administrator’s accomplishments, but too much of the series focuses on the superficial and overlooks some important issues…” (8/25).
