Sussex Development Lectures

The Sussex Development Lecture series is an opportunity to hear from leading global thinkers on development. It is jointly run by the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), the School of Global Studies, SPRU and the Centre for International Education based at the University of Sussex and open to students, staff and members of the general public.

Sussex Development Lecture

We live in a fast changing world. Old certainties are dissolving in the face of unprecedented challenges. New configurations of power and influence are emerging. What are the challenges we now face in not only understanding these changes, but in engaging to generate knowledge that can make a difference in addressing global inequalities and injustice? These lectures explore some of the methodological, ethical and political challenges of engaged development studies. 

Please note

All lectures start at 17:00 prompt at the University of Sussex (please see indivual event listings for lecture theatre information).
