Awardee | Daniel Honig, Ph.D. candidate in Public Policy
Dan Honig, Ph.D. candidate in Public Policy, has been named one of 13 international winners of the Global Development Network's Next Horizons essay competition, an initiative sponsored in partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to recognize "original and innovative thinking to inform the ongoing discourse on development assistance."
With this initiative, the Global Development Network aims to draw attention to the need for scholarship and fresh ideas in this area. The winning essays, selected from 1,470 submissions from 142 countries around the world, were judged by a jury of international experts "to be the best and most potentially consequential on the basis of their originality, usefulness, and analytical quality." Winning entries each receive a $20,000 award.
Honig's paper, "More Autonomy for Donor Organizations and Their Agents (Sometimes): Bringing Organizational Behavior and Management Theory to Foreign Aid," may be viewed online at the Global Development Network website.
