AidData names Brad Parks and Stephen Davenport as Executive Directors

AidData, now entering its third year, has appointed Brad Parks and Stephen Davenport as its new Executive Directors. This represents a shift towards a long-term partnership between Brigham Young University, the College of William and Mary and Development Gateway, from its origins as an informal partnership between the three institutions.

Brad Parks is based at the Institute for Theory and Practice and will oversee AidData's research initiatives and its data collection, coding and standardization activities. Stephen Davenport of Development Gateway will oversee AidData's work with partners on innovation, data visualization, and international standards for aid information and transparency.
