    The Marshall Plan’s 70th anniversary and the future of development cooperation

    When: Tuesday, June 5, 2018, 3:30 — 4:45 p.m.

    Where: The Brookings Institution, Falk Auditorium, 1775 Massachusetts Ave, NW, Washington, DC


    In 1948, drawing upon analysis and recommendations developed by the Brookings Institution, the United States Congress enacted the Marshall Plan to rebuild Europe in the wake of World War II. The plan’s success in revitalizing the economy and accelerating peace and prosperity ultimately provided a template for official development assistance and the development cooperation practiced today by the U.S. and other donor nations.

    On June 5, the Global Economy and Development program at Brookings and U.S. Agency for International Development will co-host an event to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Marshall Plan and reflect on strategies for advancing cooperative leadership in global development. Panelists will include USAID Administrator Mark Green, CARE USA CEO Michelle Nunn, Brookings President John R. Allen, moderated by Brookings Senior Fellow Anthony F. Pipa.

    The high-level event will use the lenses of security, diplomatic, development, and humanitarian interventions to examine lessons from the Marshall Plan. Panelists will also discuss how U.S.’s approach to international development incorporates security, diplomacy, and development concerns.

    Following the conversation, panelists will take audience questions.

    This event has reached capacity and registration is now closed.
