Center for International Development (CID)
- Homepage: http://www.cid.harvard.edu/
September 2006: "Center for International Development at Harvard University (CID) was established on July 1, 1998 by the Harvard Institute for International Development (HIID) and the Kennedy School of Government (KSG) to serve as Harvard’s primary center for research on sustainable international development. Housed at the Kennedy School, CID is a university-wide research center, drawing upon faculty, staff, and researchers from the KSG, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the School of Public Health, the Medical School, the Graduate School of Education, the Graduate School of Design, the Law School, and the Business School.
Ricardo Hausmann, Professor of the Practice of Economic Development at the Kennedy School, became the Director of CID on October 12, 2005. CID also has a faculty Policy Advisory Committee, comprised of Philippe Aghion (Department of Economics), William C. Clark (Kennedy School), Merilee Grindle (Kennedy School), Michael R. Kremer (Department of Economics), James Robinson (Department of Government), Dani Rodrik (Kennedy School), and Debora L. Spar (Business School).
CID was established with one overriding conceptual notion: the need for cross-disciplinary approaches to the challenges of sustainable development. In virtually every area that now challenges the globe in sustainable development – from the need to ignite economic growth to the imperative of delivering an adequate level of social services to the poor; from the preservation of biodiversity to the limitation and management of climate change; from the control of emerging and re-emerging infectious disease to the limitation of environmental stresses resulting from historically unprecedented population increase – solutions are possible, but will require breakthroughs in approaches at the cutting edge of the hard sciences, the social sciences, ethics, and politics. CID exists to bridge the gaps between disciplines, pulling together Harvard’s top minds as they, in collaboration with colleagues throughout the world, push forward the science of explaining the sources of and remedies for entrenched global poverty and the political and environmental circumstances that surround it.
CID is a central pillar of Harvard University’s deepening commitment to the problems of international development..."http://www.cid.harvard.edu/cidinformation/
November 2001: "Dr. Attaran's boss, Jeffrey Sachs, director of the Center for International Development at Harvard, supports Dr. Attaran's study, and argues that the tight-fistedness of rich countries and the failure of governments like South Africa's to pursue antiretroviral drugs aggressively are the main reasons affordable AIDS drugs are not widely available in poor nations."http://www.nytimes.com/2001/11/05/international/africa/05AIDS.html
