( 19-10-2018 ) On Thursday 25 October Dr. Duncan Green gives a public lecture on request of the Ghent Centre for Global Studies on ’How Change Happens - how understanding power and systems can unlock the path to social change.’
Dr. Duncan Green is Senior Strategic Adviser at Oxfam GB and Professor in Practice in International Development at the London School of Economics.
He is the author of How Change Happens (OUP, October 2016) and From Poverty to Power: How Active Citizens and Effective States can Change the World (Oxfam International, 2008, second edition 2012).
Dr. Green is internationally reknown. For instance this is what Amartya Sen wrote on ’How Change Happens’:
"In this powerfully argued book, Duncan Green shows how we can make major changes in our unequal and unjust world by concerted action, taking full note of the economic and social mechanisms, including established institutions, that sustain the existing order. ... This is a splendid treatise on how to change the actual world-- in reality, not just in our dreams."
- The lecture takes place in Het Pand from 13:00 to 14:00
- Attendance is free, but subscription is necessary
