Introducing the 2019/20 ‘Cutting Edge Issues in Development’ Lecture Series

2 comments

Estimated reading time: 5 minutes

The Cutting Edge Issues in Development series is back, and this year we have another fantastic line up of guest speakers from 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.

We are very happy that we were able to get some of the big names in the field of international development on board – guest speakers include Ha Joon Chang (Cambridge University), Dr Rafeef Ziadah (School of Oriental and African Studies), and Kevin Watkins (Save The Children UK), just to name a few.

The series will run through both Michaelmas and Lent Term every Friday (except during reading weeks) from 4-6pm in the Sheikh Zayed Theatre in the New Academic Building at the LSE. The lectures will usually be followed by informal networking drinks at a pub on campus.

The lecture series is open to external guest, who can attend by filling out the following form.

We look forward to seeing you there!
