The Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs will to host a Directors’ Lunch with Professor Robert Rotberg, Director of the Belfer Center’s Program on Intrastate Conflict and Conflict Resolution on Wednesday, October 31st in the Belfer Center Library (L369)

Robert I. Rotberg is the author and editor of numerous books and articles on U.S. foreign policy, Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean, most recently, Worst of the Worst: Dealing with Repressive and Rogue Nations (2007), Building a New Afghanistan (2007), A Leadership for Peace: How Edwin Ginn Tried to Change the World (2006), Battling Terrorism in the Horn of Africa (2005), and When States Fail: Causes and Consequences (2004).

Professor Rotberg invented a new method of ranking governance – the performance of governments – and now he and Rachel Gisselquist, plus a team drawn from the Kennedy School of Government, have produced the first ever annual Index of African Governance as a model for measuring the delivery of political goods by governments anywhere and everywhere.
