Peter Gourevitch, professor of political science at University of California, San Diego, and the founding dean of the School of International Relations and Pacific Studies, to present "Monitoring the Monitors: Evaluating Performance of NGOs' Measurement of Ethical Standards, Transnational and Domestic." NGOs seeking to do good need at times to prove their virtue: their good intentions may not suffice to assure donors or buyers. Until recently NGOs got something of a "free pass," but increasingly they are expected to show the transparency and accountability they demand of others. Sponsored by the Center for International and Comparative Law. For more information, contact Neylan Gurel at email@example.com.
