Development as Dignity

Development in the Global South is fundamentally about dignity – the dignity of people, of planet, and of all life. In a new anthology by the Aspen New Voices Fellows, the authors offer a balanced view of global health and development, presenting a fresh perspective in an increasingly polarized world. Hear them tell stories of their quest for dignity and share engaging insights from Africa, South Asia, and the Middle East.
