Faith based agencies - promoters of development or part of the problem?

Do faith based agencies play a role that is distinct from secular organisations in development and relief processes? And have such organisations contributed, contemporarily or historically, to development processes?

A panel of experts will discuss faith based agencies, their potential and possible limitations, in a public debate at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) on Thursday 9 February.

Mohammed Kroessin, assistant CEO of Muslim Aid Muslim Aid, Dr Daleep Mukarji, director of Christian Aid, and Dr James Putzel, director of LSE's Crisis States Research Centre, will reflect upon whether contemporarily and historically faith-based organisations have contributed or not to development processes.

Professor Jude Howell, director of the Centre for Civil Society at LSE, will chair this debate.

Faith based agencies - promoters of development or part of the problem? is on Thursday 9 February at 6.30pm in the Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE, Houghton Street, London WC2A. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
