Access to Action is a blog of ideas on international development informed by my education and experiences and shaped by my personal values.  It is not intended to portray mythical objective truths about development, but rather to give a thoughtful and reasoned personal perspective of current events in the field.  My positions, though passionate, are not unassailable and I hope that my flexibility will bring myself and others to a new understanding.   By offering my ideas in a forum open to public debate I can only benefit by the growth derived from challenges. 

If readers can at least agree with me that we should work towards a world that is free from extreme poverty, hunger, and abuse of human rights, then we have a basis of conversation.  We then have a commonality, a unifying thread of purpose that will give us the ability to resolve conflicts over how to reach our goal.  Without conflict there is no growth.
