Over the course of the academic year, the FLCA hosts a series of seminars and practical workshops for students and researchers.
The Centre for Public Authority and International Development (CPAID) explores how governance works in marginalised and conflict-affected regions. It investigates the complexity of public authority and the risks and opportunities this creates for international development and inclusive growth.
Each academic year, CPAID hosts a series of seminars with academics from across LSE, the UK and other institutions abroad to discuss how public authority relates to development.
For the Michaelmas term, here are the CPAID seminars so far confirmed:
- 10 October 2019 | Education Work and Leisure: How Young Men Make Sense of their Lives in Eastern Uganda? | Ben Jones, University of East Anglia | 12.30-2:00pm | Room CBG.1.05
