On Thursday, December 3, 2009, CGD hosted Andrew Mitchell, MP, Shadow Minister for International Development, for a talk on British Development Policy and the Conservative Party. Mitchell discussed the UK Conservative Party's development policy and plans, including the main elements of the "green paper" issued recently. One World Conservatism (pdf, 523KB) lays out the Tory strategy for fighting global poverty and how the UK aid regime may change if the Conservative Party wins next year's elections. Nancy Birdsall, President, Center for Global Development, provided remarks and CGD's Vice President for Corporate Affairs, and Senior Fellow, Todd Moss, moderated the discussion.
