International Growth Centre and Department of International Development public discussion
Date: Tuesday 1 November 2016
Venue: Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House
Speaker: Duncan Green
Discussant: Professor Naila Kabeer
Chair: Hugh Cole
In his latest book How Change Happens Duncan Green explores how political and social change takes place, and the role of individuals and organizations in influencing that change. Duncan will discuss the challenges that 'systems thinking' creates for traditional aid practices, and how a 'power and systems approach' requires activists, whether in campaigns, companies or governments, to fundamentally rethink the way they understand the world and try to influence it.
