ID student organisers

Events hosted by ID's student organisers for students and staff in the Department of International Development

Each year ID has a group of student organisers in the Department of International Development who work together to coordinate events and activities and build a sense of community among students (and between students and staff) in ID. 

With the support of the comms team, particularly the Communications and Events Officer Maya Bullen, the ID student organisers will plan and execute department-wide and programme-specific events and projects around three different areas:

Social events: Stephane Legrand (DM), Djehane Vally (DM), Kevin Tannous (EPID), Libby Moor (HID), Onyedikachi Veronica Ann Arochukwu (IDHE).  

Social events coordinators will organise a range of social activities throughout the year, likely a mix of in-person and online activities. These could include quizzes, food themed nights, coffee mornings, game nights, outdoor activities or trips etc.

Careers and professional development: Shiwani (DS), Razan Awwad (DM), Valentina Papu (IDHE), Makayla Levitt (IDHE). 

Careers and professional development coordinators will help to organise events related to careers, such as networking events or talks/panel events with recent ID alumni or other professionals working in the International Development sector.

Academic events: Parvathy Sreekumar (DS), Jeong Yeon Cho (DM), Ilsa Tariq (DM), Hannah Duffy (IDHE), Allegra Chan (HID), Bincy Mathew (PHD). 

Academic events coordinators will take responsibility for organising academic or educational events for students in the department. Events could include field trips to sites around London related to development, panel discussions with guest speakers or more informal events like coffee mornings with academics in the department.


All students are welcome to suggest ideas for events or projects by getting in contact with a student activity organiser from their programme or Maya, the Comms and Events Officer, and we can then work together to make your event happen. Events and activities will be shared via Moodle, email and on this page.

Documentary Premier: Hearing No Objection

Thursday 28 March 2024, 7.10pm - 8.45pm |  CLM.4.02

Hearing No Objection is a Swiss Youth For Climate documentary about youth activism at the largest international climate summit yet; COP28 in Dubaï. The film, directed by Emily Boyle follows Alexis Balimann and Solange Zongo as they navigate the complicated and controversial conference. The film explores how youth activists try to bring about change by exposing their strategies, hopes and disappointments as well as some of their successes. It is a film by youth, for youth and hopes to encourage political participation among young people. Youth activists might be in negotiation rooms, but it is about time they be handed the microphones.

Completed in March 2024, this event will be the film’s premiere! Hosted by Dr Myfanwy James, the screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Dr Tom Kirk, the filmmaker Emily Boyle, and Leïla Réau, president of Swiss Youth For Climate. Following the discussion, we will then open the floor up to questions. Emily invites attendees to celebrate the premiere of the film at the White Horse for a few drinks after the screening!


  • Emily Boyle is a student at the LSE. She is currently studying for an MSc in International Development and Humanitarian Emergencies. Hearing No Objections is her second short documentary. She has been a member of Swiss Youth For Climate since 2022.

OECD-LSE Debating Aid Seminar: Locally led development in the evolving international aid system

Wednesday 27 March 2024 | 12.00pm - 1.00pm |  Online Via Zoom, please register here.

The Development Co-operation Report 2023 finds that debates are crystalising around the need for a fundamental rethinking of the international aid system. The report proposes ideas for action to overcome roadblocks to existing financial and other commitments; support locally led transformation in partner countries; modernise business models and financial management practices; and rebalance power relations in international decision-making and partnerships.

Against the backdrop of overlapping crises, unprecedented strain on international development budgets, and geopolitical tensions, there is a growing recognition of the imperative for locally led development. Critique of the roots, rationale and operations of the international aid system is resulting in calls for fundamental change, manifesting, for example, in the movements to address colonial legacies and racism in the sector. The report flags the need to address power imbalances that impede local leadership, ownership, and legitimacy. Building upon the report’s insights, the webinar provides a platform for an engaging discussion on the evolving landscape and future trajectory of international development. Join us as we collectively reflect on how locally led development can be a promising pathway forward for development cooperation, examining its implications, challenges, and potential bottlenecks.

  • Chilande Kuloba-Warria, Founder and Managing Director, Warande Advisory Centre

Bringing stories from their careers studying and working in ethically complicated spheres, these panelists will discuss career considerations, research considerations, and reflect on their own career paths. 

About the Panelists:

    • Professor Putzel is the Programme Director of Development Studies and Research at the LSE. His research covers a range of themes, from comparative politics of development in East and Southeast Asia, to problems of institutional change, to the role of politics and governance in development. He also has extensive experience in consultancy and advisory roles for development-oriented organisations.
    • Dr. Pailey’s research focuses on how structural transformation is conceived and contested by local, national and transnational actors from ‘crisis’-affected regions of the so-called ‘Global South’.
    • Dr. Ngutuku is a scholar-activist working on development issues from a critical decolonial perspective and has been part of a movement aimed at decolonizing research and development practices in Africa. Her multidisciplinary work investigates children and young people’s lived experience of poverty, education, citizenship claims and sexual and reproductive health.
