Forgotten?

Welcome to The Centre

The Centre is Edelman Brussels’ forum for debate, allowing people engaged in shaping Europe’s development to share ideas and views. It is both an incubator of ideas – hosting seminars, round tables, book launches, debates and a range of social events; and an instigator of ideas – collaborating with think tanks, foundations and other thinking communities globally to provide a different perspective and revitalise debate on the major issues of the day.

 

 

Recognising the globalised, inter-connected and inter-dependent nature of relationships in the rapidly changing 21st century world in which we all operate, The Centre’s activities take a European perspective as their starting point, but range across a wide set of often complex and inter-related issues, which we organise broadly as follows:

  • Public Engagement, Communications & the Media
  • Technology, Innovation, Jobs & the Knowledge Society
  • Health, Consumers & the Leisure Economy
  • Energy Security, Mobility & Natural Resource Efficiency
  • Macro-Economics, Finance, Trade & International Relations
  • Elections, Institutions, Governance & Security

What is the role of the private sector in development assistance?

What is the role of the private sector in development assistance?

08 Apr 2014

The role of the private sector in development is at the very centre of current debates about the future of development assistance. The private sector is generally seen as an important driver of development because it is a source of jobs, income, tax revenues and new investments. However, it includes a large number of actors with very diverse roles.
