Thu 27 April 2017, 09:30 – 17:00 BST
Join us on Thursday 27th April for the third London International Development Centre (LIDC) Biennial Conference, to celebrate our work to date and to look to the future. The theme of this year's conference will be 'Interdisciplinary Approaches to Inequality.' Expect a mixture of panel sessions and interactive parallel sesions on issues of inequality in nutrition, health, financialisation, systems of provision, poverty and more!
The LIDC Conference, held every two years, offers its members and others a platform to discuss best practice in interdisciplinary research projects in international development, engage with one another, and develop new project and training ideas.
The day will consist of several parallel and panel sessions, which attendees are encouraged to actively particpate in. Please see the full programme here! Individual session abstracts can be found here.

London International Development Centre (LIDC) was created in 2008 to facilitate innovative research in international development across the University of London Bloomsbury Colleges, cutting across sectoral, disciplinary and institutional barriers. The first conference was held in 2013. Now, four years later, LIDC is looking back at what it has accomplished, and forwards to its future work.
We have facilitated projects to the value of over £25 million and have held hundreds of public events. Our membership network is at least 2,500 strong, including students, staff and alumni from across 5 member colleges.
