South Asia Development Conference
Saturday 29th April 2017
Speakers: Nobel Laureate Kaliash Satyarthi, Acclaimed Journalist Najam Sethi, Ex Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar
Conceptualised by the LSE SU South Asia Society in collaboration with the LSE South Asia Centre, the LSE South Asia Development Conference is a unique initiative which has been pioneered to serve as a forum to identify, discuss and influence the development discourse in the region.
Building on the essence of regional cooperation and globalisation, it seeks to incorporate and address the challenges faced by the region as a whole as opposed to individual countries. This not only fosters a sense of unity and common purpose, but also serves as a precedent for the development of better regional cooperation, as well as facilitating the emergence of leaders with a regional, synergy driven outlook.
The summit will involve some of the most prominent voices on South Asia and promises to drive forward the developmental agenda in South Asia. The debates, discussions and interactions held as a part of this conference will most definitely have a wider global reach, as well as the potential to influence political change makers of South Asia.
