Robinson to Discuss Haitian Disaster

February 16, 2010

On Wednesday, February 17, Dr. Scott Robinson will give a lecture on the recent Haitian disaster. Robinson is an associate professor at the Bush School of Government and Public Service. His presentation is part of the MSC Wiley Lecture Series, which showcases internationally renowned speakers on issues of global significance. The lecture will be held in Koldus 110, and will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Robinson will discuss the current status of the relief effort in Haiti, as well as how the nation will rebuild, and what role the United States will play in that recovery effort. Known for his research on the management and politics of public agencies and the dynamics of public policy, Robinson is currently studying how nongovernmental agencies (NGOs) such as nonprofits and religious organizations add to recovery capacity in times of disasters.
