Seminar 13/2: How Change Happens

13 februari, 2017 - kl. 18:00 till 19:30

How can we understand the events, individuals and institutions that change the world? That is a question that Duncan Green tries to answer in his book written for ”activists who want to change the world”. Green draws on his longterm experience within development and his substantial theoretical insights. He argues that for social action to be successful, it is crucial to understand power relations and to apply systems thinking. In this respect, Green appears to align himself with the current ”Doing Development Differently” movement which encourages us to rethink how we do and think about development.

What do we know about the triggers for social change? How can external actors contribute to change? What is the role of civil society?

FUF welcomes Duncan Green, Senior Strategic Adviser at Oxfam GB and author of the book How Change Happens, to FUF-fåtöljen. Helena Bjuremalm (FUF) will comment on Green’s presentation and Karin Metell Cueva (Sida) will moderate the seminar. We invite you to join this inspiring conversation with one of our most influential development thinkers and practitioners!
