Discover Global Development in London
For the first time, the respective International Development Societies of the University of London (LSE, SOAS and KCL) are collaborating to host Europe’s expected largest student-led event on international development.
In February 2020, we strive to critically explore the theme of “Development in the 21st Century?” Throughout the Symposium, we will be examining many of the cutting edge issues that characterise the current development paradigm.
By hosting a wide range of keynote speaker events, discussion panels with world-class intellectuals and development workshops, our goal is to showcase exciting innovations in the field and the multiplicity of ways that students of all backgrounds and disciplines can contribute to international development.
Our core pillars consist in the development of global ideas, empowering participants to challenge stereotypes and to generate an enduring social impact within these educational institutions of best practice and beyond.
