The major auditorium in the Woodrow Wilson School has been renamed for Sir Arthur Lewis, a Nobel laureate in economics, who served on the School’s faculty from 1963 to 1983.

“The scope of his research was truly international. It is important to have that message — along with a message about diversity and inclusion — associated with Princeton's School of Public and International Affairs.”

The Policy Debate

In 2012, Rwanda's national land registry completed a nearly four-year project that, for the first time, mapped the country's 10.4 million parcels and prepared title documents for 8 million landholders. The program established a system for registering and transferring landownership, but long-term success hinged on ensuring that Rwandans registered all property transactions going forward. When a 2012 survey revealed that seven out of eight landowners neglected to pick up their titles, a registry team rapidly launched a nationwide campaign to raise awareness about the importance of titling and reporting transactions while managers simplified procedures and registration forms. By mid 2017, registrations of sales, purchases, and other transfers had begun to increase, but more improvements were still needed.
