 * DEV Talks Series

The OECD Development Centre DEV Talks series aims at nurturing the debate on subjects at the crossroads of economic growth and well-being. These sets of meetings are a way for the Centre to engage with individual partners and organisations through the exchange of fresh perspectives and intellectually-provoking ideas.

The series was rolled out in October 2014 just a week after the presidential polls in Brazil, precisely with a focus on the challenges facing newly re-elected Dilma Rousseff. Previous DEV Talks have showcased Jesús Gracia Aldaz, Secretary of State for Latin American Affairs and for International Development Cooperation of Spain, on the topic “Renewed international cooperation priorities for economic and inclusive development in Latin America”, as well as Chilean author Andrés Solimano on his latest book “Economic Elites, Crises and Democracy”.
