Commentary by Terrence McKeegan, J.D. September 30, 2010 (C-FAM) – A rock star's scandal and a surprising critique of aid programs last week underscored heightened criticism of international development efforts. The two incidents upended the intended message of a summit on UN development policies, reflecting a growing disconnect between rhetoric and development results.
