Rethinking Development Policy

Steve Killelea, founder and executive chairman of the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP), will discuss the institute's Global Peace Index, the world's leading measure of national peacefulness. The institute uses the index and other tools to uncover the relationships between business, peace and prosperity, as well as promote a better understanding of the cultural, economic and political factors that create peace. Killelea, a high-tech entrepreneur from Australia, founded Integrated Research, a publicly-listed company that develops performance management and payments software. In 2000, he established The Charitable Foundation, one of the largest private overseas aid organizations in Australia. His founding of the IEP in 2007 was recognized as one of the 50 most impactful philanthropic gifts in Australia's history. RSVP at
