Sept 2018: International Conference
28-29 September 2018
Glasgow, United Kingdom
At the end of the period of network building, representatives from each of the localities were invited to participate at a major event at the University of Warwick, to exchange ideas, discuss common experiences of poverty, and share ideas on poverty reduction solutions. This event also drew together experts from across the University of Warwick community, including world-leading academics from the GRP on International Development, who are especially leading the way in discussions of global gender equality, and Warwick’s Global History & Culture Centre.
Crucially, this conference also included representatives from the UK's governmental Department for International Development and practitioners from prominent international development NGOs, with the explicit intention to bring this shared discussion and experience into dialogue with contemporary international development policy.
