The Cutting Edge Issues in Development series is back, and this year we have another fantastic line up of guest speakers from around the world working in the field of International Development.
The new academic year has just started, and this means we are back with our exciting lecture series ‘Cutting Edge Issues in Development Thinking and Practice’! This visiting lecture series, which is hosted by the International Development Department, provides students and guests with invaluable insights into the practical world of international development.
This year, we move the series back to in-person for our students and staff, but we will continue to offer online audience the chance to join the lectures via Zoom. We will also be sharing each lecture on YouTube, Podcast and through student reflections on our blog.
Guests include Ha-Joon Chang, Rafeef Ziadah, Branko Milanovic, Naomi Hossain, Jayati Ghosh, Mushtaq Khan, Nanjala Nyabola, Idress Ahmad, Kecheng Fang and Amil Khan.
The year the series is convened by Professor in Practice, Duncan Green and Dr Laura Mann.
