Catch up on events from LIDC

LIDC temporarily closed the doors to its offices on 20 Bloomsbury Square in mid-March this year. Overnight, all aspects of their operations had to move online and be carried out remotely – including events.

This roundup gives gives you the opportunity to catch up on events you might have missed, including “How Much do Black Lives Matter in Global Development?”, featuring discussion from Dr Althea Maria Rivas (SOAS), Dr Robtel Neajai Pailey (University of Oxford) and Dr Kalpana Wilson (Birkbeck) on the extent and impact of racism in international development.
