Please join LIDS for our 2013 Symposium!!
Date: Friday, October 18, 2013
Time: 12:30 pm to 5 p.m.
Location: Harvard Law School, Wasserstein Hall, Milstein West
Focus: This year’s LIDS Symposium, entitled “Trade and Entrepreneurship: Linking Local Growth to Global Markets,” aims to highlight the legal, political, and economic barriers facing new businesses and aspiring exporters in developing countries. The symposium begins with the underlying notion that independent and sustainable development cannot occur without the emergence of successful, exportable domestic industries. While approaches such as microfinance gained traction in the past decade, efforts to grow subsistence-level producers and informal businesses into more efficient medium-sized enterprises in developing countries have remained frustratingly slow. Through the rich experience of the speakers, the 2013 LIDS symposium aims to exchange valuable lessons from NGOs, government, academia, and groundbreaking fieldwork in the search for solutions that to lead the way forward in this critical area of development.
