Kemal Derviş delivers the Fourth Annual Richard H. Sabot Lecture on June 11, 2009.
The Richard H. Sabot Lecture is held annually to honor the life and work of Richard “Dick” Sabot, a respected professor, celebrated development economist, successful Internet entrepreneur, and close friend of the Center for Global Development (CGD) who died suddenly in July 2005. As a founding member of CGD’s Board of Directors, Dick’s enthusiasm and intellect encouraged our beginnings. His work as a scholar and as a development practitioner helped to shape the Center’s vision of independent research and new ideas in the service of better development policies and practices.
