Each week, the Inside the Issues podcast series will go in-depth with a different CIGI expert on the most challenging issues in global governance. Hosted by CIGI Chair David Welch, these candid and timely discussions are available on the CIGI YouTube channel and on iTunes video and audio.

In episode 18, Secretary General of the Red Cross/Red Crescent Societies Mukesh Kapila, talks about the next generation of international development - one that will go beyond "feeding and watering" those in need and move away from donor-driven official development assistance projects. He goes on to say that the next paradigm should include an understanding of dignity, self-actualization and social development. "Creating wealth is a necessary but insufficient condition for generating and sustaining genuine human development," he explains.

From January to June 2011, CIGI Chair of Global Security of David Welch, hosted the first season of Inside the Issues - a weekly podcast series featuring CIGI's global governance experts. The resulting 22 episodes feature timely and candid discussions on issues related to the core areas of CIGI expertise: Global Economy, Global Security & Politics and International Law.
