"Humanitarian Campaigning and the Cosmopolitan Imagination", TONIGHT!

6th November 2008

The second panel of the Humanitarian and Development Communications project will take place this Thursday, 6th Nov. from 6.30 -8pm in G108, Kingsway, LSE. The panel will discuss the increasing commercialisation in the communication practices of NGOs and reflect on the tensions that this trend brings about. These are old tensions between fund- and awareness-raising, which are now reformulated as tensions between profit and justice; consumption and solidarity; entertainment and social change.

Confirmed Panelists:

Dr. Bruna Seu , Birkbeck: University of London.
