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 , the Science Policy and Research Unit (SPRU) and the Centre for International Education (CIE), based at the University of Sussex.
Development in an uncertain world
From Covid-19 to climate change, economic shocks to technological disruptions, we are all living in a highly complex, interconnected and increasingly uncertain world. For this Sussex Development Lecture series we bring together diverse perspectives to examine our current era of uncertainty. We ask: How do we conceptualise uncertainty and its relationship with sustainable and inclusive development processes? What are the implications for research and action? And what are the implications for valuing diverse kinds of knowledge and tackling increasingly entrenched inequities globally?
Join us for this series of thought-provoking discussions and debates convened by IDS and the University of Sussex, together ranked first in the world for development studies.
