Dr Duncan Green of Oxfam Great Britain joined Sydney Ideas to share the ideas in his latest book How Change Happens, exploring the topic of social and political change from the perspective of international development.

How Change Happens aims to bridge the gap between academia and practice, bringing together the best research from a range of academic disciplines and the evolving practical understanding of activists to explore the topic of social and political change.

Drawing on first-hand examples from the global experience of Oxfam, one of the world’s largest social justice NGOs, as well as the author’s insights from studying and working on international development, it tests ideas on How Change Happens and offers the latest thinking on what works to achieve progressive change.

Duncan will be in conversation with Dr Thushara Dibley, Deputy Director of the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre at the University of Sydney.

This event was co-presented by the Research for Development Impact (RDI) Network, the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre at the University of Sydney and the Developmental Leadership Program.
