THEME: technology and development


THEME: technology and development


with over 50 percent of the world's population expected to be online for the first time in 2017, technology and the crucial role it plays in developing countries is taking center stage.

with mobile banking, portable solar panels, crowdfunding, and geolocation services, there are scarcely any people or places that are not impacted by improvements or changes that transform their lives. what do these technological innovations mean for the distribution of political power, social inclusion, democratic governance and poverty reduction? how will this impact sustainability and growth in developing countries? what opportunities do these innovations offer developing nations, and what are some challenges they pose? 

We are interested in your perspective on how technology is shaping international development.

The Photos


The Photos


The photos on our site were chosen from the top sixteen entries to our 2016 photo contest. We were overwhelmed by the response to this year's photo contest. We received over 220 amazing photos taken around the world by members of the sais community. To celebrate the launch of our new online platform, we displayed the top nineteen entries at a photo exhibit held at SAIS. To learn more about the exhibit and the stories behind the pictures, click here

Who are We?


Who are We?


 

SAIS Perspectives is the student-run publication of the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies International Development (IDEV) Program. OUR GOAL IS TO CREATE A PLATFORM FOR SHARING DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES ON CURRENT ISSUES IN THE FIELD OF INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT. 

Each year the editors choose a theme, and then solicit articles based upon that theme from the GREATER SAIS community. Last year’s theme, "migration and displacement," brought together articles from students, professors, and alumni on pro-refugee policies in brazil, foreign policy and refugees in turkey and canada. 2014's theme was "CITIES AND URBANIZATION." This year’s theme is “technology and development.” 

Previously, SAIS Perspectives was an annual print publication. in 2014, however, we launched SAIS Perspectives' new online home, www.saisperspectives.com. WE ACCEPT BOTH SHORT BLOG ENTRIES THAT HIGHLIGHT AN ISSUE OR INTERESTING EXPERIENCE, AS WELL AS LONGER ARTICLES THAT DELVE DEEPER INTO AN ISSUE. OTHER MEDIA—SUCH AS PICTURES OR VIDEO—ARE ALSO ACCEPTABLE. 

WE ENCOURAGE ALL SAIS STUDENTS, FACULTY, AND ALUMNI  TO SUBMIT ARTICLES FOR PUBLICATION.
