David Hirschmann

"I have number of interests, and these change from time to time. Today I would say I focus mainly on development management, strategic planning and performance measurement, micropolitics/social soundness, gender and development, bureaucracy, democracy and decentralization. I have worked in several African countries as a professor and researcher, and have undertaken consulting assignments in many countries in Africa and Asia and in a few transitional societies.

"I have written approximately 55 publications, mostly in scholarly journals, but some in more applied journals. The major topics I have covered include: Reengineering and Performance Measurement in USAID; Development Management/ Bureaucracy/ Administration, and Planning; Women and Development; Women and Political Participation/ Democracy/ Civil Society; Elections Management; Institutional Development; Rural Development; Development Policy; and Southern African Politics. " [1]
