International Development

FSI researchers consider international development from a variety of angles. They analyze ideas such as how public action and good governance are cornerstones of economic prosperity in Mexico and how investments in high school education will improve China’s economy.

They are looking at novel technological interventions to improve rural livelihoods, like the development implications of solar power-generated crop growing in Northern Benin.

FSI academics also assess which political processes yield better access to public services, particularly in developing countries. With a focus on health care, researchers have studied the political incentives to embrace UNICEF’s child survival efforts and how a well-run anti-alcohol policy in Russia affected mortality rates.

FSI’s work on international development also includes training the next generation of leaders through pre- and post-doctoral fellowships as well as the Draper Hills Summer Fellows Program.

“横跨太平洋”课程项目

问题 美国学生,特别是高中生,对中国的了解甚少。对于世界上最重要的这两个国家,这是一个巨大的潜在问题。 尽管中美关系愈发重要,大部分美国高中生仍没有有效的课程途径来学习了解当代中国。 为什么美国的学生们不能更好地了解中国?一方面,中国是个非常复杂的国家。中国正在经历大规模、复杂的经济转型, 这是前所未有的。 国内既有繁华高档的地区,也有贫穷待发展的地区。

Can Life Counselors Curb Dropout in Rural Chinese Schools? <br> 生活辅导老师能抑制中国农村地区学校的辍学吗?

问题      在中国,城乡之间的社会和经济差距任然是巨大的,尤其是在教育领域。虽然几乎所有大城市的学生都能进入高级中学读书,但是却仅有不到一半的贫困农村地区的孩子将只能进入中等学校读书。      随着中国社会的不断发展,对于没有技能的劳动力的需求数量将会下降,那些离开初中辍学的人的就业机会较少。

向家庭提供幼儿园“兑换券”

问题 尽管,中国农村教育在过去十年取得了长足的发展,但农村地区教育水平依然面临着许多挑战,其教育水平也远远落后于城市地区。其中一个挑战是农村学生比城市地区同龄学生晚上学问题。在城市地区几乎所有的儿童都会上幼儿园/学前班,城市幼儿园/学前班的教学质量普遍较高。相反,在农村地区的幼儿园/学前班,即便有,教学质量也难以让人信服。
