Event description

Description

Duncan Green is Oxfam GB’s Senior Strategic Adviser. He also teaches on international development at the London School of Economics, where he is a Professor in Practice. His blog is one of the most widely read on international development, and is named after his book “From Poverty to Power”.

Duncan Green will introduce his new book How Change Happens (OUP, October 2016) and will provide a chance for the audience to challenge, engage and add their own perspectives.

How Change Happens explores how political and social change takes place, and the role of individuals and organizations in influencing that change. He discusses the challenges that 'systems thinking' creates for traditional activism and aid, 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.

‘This is a splendid treatise on how to change the actual world—in reality, not just in our dreams’ - Amartya Sen

‘An indispensable guide for activists and change-makers everywhere’ - Francis Fukuyama
