Speaking at development events

I will be speaking at a seminar on Amartya Sen’s seminal Development as Freedom at 7pm on 24 January at the University of Westminster. The book is probably the most eloquent statement of the case for downplaying the importance of economic growth in the development process. Not only is Sen a top academic, with a Nobel price in economics, he has also acted as a senior adviser to the United Nations and the World Bank.

The seminar is not restricted to those at the University of Westminster. For more details click here.

I will also be speaking at an event in Newcastle on the environment and development on 17 March. The Saturday conference is jointly organised by the Great Debate and Worldwrite. Details are available here.
