The Arab Spring, decline of the global North, financial crises and spasms in the world food system have profoundly changed the way we think about development. Duncan Green, author of From Poverty to Power (book and blog) will explore how our thinking is changing, and what it means for the practice of aid and development.
Dr. Duncan Green is Senior Strategic Adviser at Oxfam Great Britain, honorary Professor of International Development at Cardiff University and a Visiting Fellow at the Institute for Development Studies. He is author of 'From Poverty to Power: How Active Citizens and Effective States can Change the World'. Duncan's daily development blog can be found here.
He was previously Oxfam’s Head of Research, a Visiting Fellow at Notre Dame University, a Senior Policy Adviser on Trade and Development at the Department for International Development (DFID), a Policy Analyst on trade and globalisation at CAFOD, the Catholic Aid Agency for England and Wales, and Head of Research and Engagement at the Just Pensions project on socially responsible investment.
He is the author of several books on Latin America including Silent Revolution: The Rise and Crisis of Market Economics in Latin America (2003), Faces of Latin America (2012) and Hidden Lives: Voices of Children in Latin America and the Caribbean (1998).
