Event description

Description

Duncan Green, Oxfam Strategic Adviser and LSE Professor of Practice in International Development, introduces the arguments of his new book, How Change Happens (OUP, October 2016).

How Change Happens explores how political and social change takes place, and outlines the role of individuals and organizations in influencing that change.
The author discusses 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, and looks at the role academic research and researchers can play in that process.

This presentation is aimed at academics, researchers and and KE Professionals and is designed to compliment our internal Impact training package.
