In his research on transparency, he examines the factors that lead individuals, groups, and organizations to materialize higher levels of transparency into speech acts, policies, procedures, and other communications.

Writing for <em>The New Yorker</em>, the <em>Washington</em> <em>Pos</em>t, the Washington <em>City Paper</em> and <em>The Washington Monthly</em>, Boo has profiled marginalized populations in the United States and abroad: from Denver to the Gulf of Mexico to Mumbai. On the purpose of her writing, Boo has written, "Very little journalism is world changing. But if change is to happen, it will be because people with power have a better sense of what's happening to people who have none."</p> <p>Boo continues her quest to give voice to those without one in her<em> New York Times</em> bestselling book &ldquo;Behind the Beautiful Forevers,&rdquo;<strong><em> </em></strong>a landmark work of narrative nonfiction that tells the dramatic and sometimes heartbreaking story of families striving toward a better life in one of the world's great, unequal cities: Mumbai, India. In this brilliantly written, fast-paced book, based on three years of uncompromising reporting, a bewildering age of global change and inequality is made human.</p> Ondjaki Wed, 22 Jan 2014 09:49:02 MST <p><em>Thursday, February 27, 2014 7:00 PM</em></p><p>For the 2014 MacLean Symposium Day 3,&nbsp;Ondjaki, in discussion with Stephen Henighan.
