What's Hot and What's Not: Trends in Development Thinking

Professor Duncan Green, Senior Strategic Adviser to Oxfam GB
Tuesday 15th October 2013 - 5:30pm
Committee Rooms, Glamorgan Building

Public lecture hosted by the Innovation and Engagement Unit.

The debate on international development is evolving fast, driven by events (Arab Spring, Climate Change, financial crises), politics (rise of the emerging powers; the debate on what should succeed the Millennium Development Goals in 2015) and new thinking (complexity and systems thinking, results agenda, new technologies, theories of change).

Drawing from his writing and role as Oxfam's strategic adviser, Duncan Green draws out some of the key moments and ideas that are shaping our understanding of development.
