The University of Melbourne is delighted to invite you to the next seminar in the Anthropology and Development Studies series with Dr. Heloise Weber of The University of Queensland.

Dr Heloise Weber will be presenting her paper A Critical Political Analysis of the SDGs: Consolidating Neoliberal Development? In this presentation, Dr Heloise Weber offers a critical political analysis of the SDG agenda. She does so in two aspects: Zooming out to demonstrate how it is configured in terms of a hierarchy of goals, differentiated by ‘means of implementation’, and zooming in on specific goals, including SDG1 on poverty and SDG2 on hunger. Dr Weber’s approach connects macro-and -micro levels, demonstrating how the agenda is tied to the consolidation of development policy as premised on commercial law.

All are welcome! Registration is via the event page (link below) in order to receive the Zoom Webinar link. This will be distributed on the day of the event, a few hours before it commences.
