As the people of the Middle East throw off their dictators, how should the U.S. government promote freedom and democracy in post-conflict zones? What role should government agencies, aid organizations and private corporations play in reconstruction? At this AEI event, Baroness Emma Nicholson of the AMAR International Charitable Foundation will discuss the role of public-private partnerships in delivering essential services after a regime change. In particular, she will address why supporting early local development such as health care systems can be a powerful reconstruction tool in post-conflict zones.
Joining Baroness Nicholson will be General Peter W. Chiarelli, vice chief of staff of the U.S. Army who served as commanding general of the Multi-National Corps—Iraq, and AEI aid expert Roger Bate. AEI’s Paul Wolfowitz, former deputy secretary of defense, will moderate.
