The Jarislowsky Chair in Public Sector Management cordially invites you to a conference by Daniel Latouche, Associate Professor at the Urbanisation Culture Société Research Centre at the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS). 

"Isomorphic mimicry, iterative problem-centered adaptation, capacity traps, RBM and other inventions"


"Everything you need to know for a career in international development"

After 25 years working in the field of Quebec and Canadian politics, including a long stint at McGill University's Political Science department and a period as Constitutional Advisor at the office of Prime Minister René Lévesque, Daniel Latouche returned to his first love, Africa. 

Since 1995, he has mainly worked as an international development consultant with a particular interest in public policies, decentralization, local economic development, access to borrowing by local authorities, and urban development.

The lecture will focus on the new approaches put forward to understand the development (or non-development) of Africa, as well as the lessons to be learned when aspiring towards a career in international development. 

The lecture will be in French but the discussion will be bilingual.

Since seating is limited, people interested in attending are encouraged to register for free by email to ccharles@uottawa.ca.

A light lunch will be served.
