The Global Development Seminar Series Launch
"Equality, sustainability, security: Towards transformations in a global development era"
Dramatic events and changes on the global stage, partially acknowledged in the ‘post 2015’ moment and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), signal a new era for global development. This involves shifts, inter alia, from narrowly tackling poverty and vulnerability, to navigating complex challenges in ways that reduce inequalities and build more sustainable, inclusive and secure futures for people and societies; from aid paradigms to a universal framing of development as everywhere – in Manchester as well as Maputo, Greece as well as Ghana; and from incremental change to more fundamental socio-political and ‘green’ transformations.
Unpacking and illustrating this reframing of development, this talk will explore what its transformative agenda means in practice – and what kinds of transformational politics and knowledge might support it.
Melissa Leach is Director of the Institute for Development Studies.
A drinks reception will follow the lecture.
