The DevCom Workshop

The mission is to demonstrate how digital multimedia can clarify key policy issues in international development.

For development practitioners, well-designed products can help frame policy alternatives and their consequences.

For students and teachers of development, the random access character of digital media allows teachers to call-up materials to illustrate a variety of points of view and respond flexibly to “teachable moments” as they arise.

"It's a Young Country": Turkey and Akbank Print

 A film by Franco Sacchi and Charles Mann   (17 Min.)

Produced by Development Communications Workshop

for the Harvard Kennedy School of Government Case Program

Jay Rosengard, Executive Director

Created to enrich a Harvard teaching case, the film provides deep insights into contemporary Turkey as one of its most successful banks explores options for future growth.  Striking images of urban and rural Turkey, cityscape and campus life, are viewed through the lenses of both Akbank’s management and independent observers. Interviews with both customers and many “unbanked” business owners add depth to the presentation.
