The 3ie Howard White lecture series is being established in honour of Dr Howard White, the first executive director of 3ie.
Howard successfully grew 3ie, from its humble beginnings in 2008, into an internationally renowned global non-profit grant-making organisation that funds policy-relevant, experimental and quasi-experimental, theory-based, mixed method impact evaluations and theory-based systematic reviews.
Each year, the 3ie Howard White lecture selection committee will invite a distinguished international development professional to deliver a lecture on a topic related to 3ie’s mission.
Below you can find all the lectures in this series and web-links to the video recordings.
These videos are also accompanied by a transcription of the lecture. 3ie requests all speakers to provide a copy of their lecture or agree to have 3ie transcribe the tape of their lecture and edit for publication.
