How Change Happens

Venue: Hong Kong Theatre
Speaker: Duncan Green
Discussant: Naila Kabeer
Chair: Hugh Cole

About the event:
The IGC and the LSE Department of International Development will be jointly hosting a public discussion on 1st November featuring Duncan Green, Senior Strategic Adviser at Oxfam GB and author of the well-known blog “From Poverty to Power: how active citizens and effective states can change the world”.

He will present his new book “How change happens”, focused on how change happens in political systems, power, and institution as well as the role of individuals and organisations in influencing that change.

Duncan will also discuss the challenges that ‘systems thinking’ creates for traditional aid practices, and how a ‘power and systems approach’ requires activists, whether in campaigns, companies or governments, to fundamentally rethink the way they understand the world and try to influence it.

Naila Kabeer, Professor of Gender and Development at LSE, will be the discussant; Hugh Cole, IGC Country Director, will chair the discussion.

About the speaker:

Duncan Green (@fp2p) is Senior Strategic Adviser at Oxfam GB and author of From Poverty to Power: How Active Citizens and Effective States can Change the World.
