Using a headline I borrowed from a smart colleague in DFID, there is an article by me in the current edition of the Public Service Review, which focuses on on international development. You can download a PDF of the article here.
My article begins with a quote from Brian Eno:
We expect that the next big thing will be a bigger version of the last big thing. What we don’t expect, yet what is most likely, is that the next big thing won’t look important to us at all – until it’s so important that we can’t ignore it.”
Brian Eno, Prospect, 26th November 2010
There are some interesting articles elsewhere in the same edition looking at the role of the private sector in development, and a rather eclectic mix of other articles.
