SEI and SweDev Dialogues on development research: Obsessive Measurement Disorder or Pragmatic Bureaucracy?

The Swedish Development Research Network (SweDev) and SEI’s Development Policy and Finance Team are happy to present Susanna Alexius and Janet Vähämäki as the keynote speakers for the next Dialogue on Development Research on 6 March, 13:00-14:30 CET.

Join Susanna Alexius and Janet Vähämäki as they discuss their findings from their newly launched book “Obsessive Measurement Disorder or Pragmatic Bureaucracy? Coping with Uncertainty in Development Aid Relations”. The authors will discuss how increases in control mechanisms in aid and development organisations are related to the quest for certainty and how to foster pragmatic, constructive organizing and learning that benefits aid organizations, their employees, and societies in need.
