FCC club lunch with Roy PROSTERMAN

Date: 22 Sep 2011 01:00 PM — 02:00 PM | Venue:

Founder and Chair Emeritus of Landesa, Nobel Peace Prize Nominee
Professor Emeritus of Law at the University of Washington

Topic: The transformation of rural China

Roy PROSTERMAN will discuss how China has benefited from expansive rural land reform, and how 30 year secure land rights have played a pivotal role in helping to accelerate the country’s historic economic development.

Landesa (formerly known as the Rural Development Institute or RDI) is a non-profit organization which works to secure land rights for the world’s poorest people through law reform, policies and programs. The organization has helped secure land rights for more than 100 million families in more than 40 countries.

A graduate of the University of Chicago and Harvard Law School, Roy is an expert on democratic land reform, rural development and foreign aid, and has been nominated twice for the Nobel Peace Prize. He is the recipient of the Outstanding Global Social Entrepreneur award from the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship, and the inaugural Henry R. Kravis Prize in Leadership.
