    USAID released its new Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance (DRG) Strategy in June 2013. The strategy elevates Human Rights, and seeks to embed DRG in broader U.S. development policy, a longstanding challenge. Representatives from USAID will present key highlights of the strategy, and the panel will provide perspectives on a number of issues, including how to confront the perennial challenge of embedding DRG in broader development, national security, and foreign policy contexts; how the United States can build upon its decades-long track record of democracy and good governance promotion; and the implications of the new strategy for USAID and other parts of the U.S. government such as the State Department.
