From Poverty to Power is meant to be a conversation, a chance to compare notes on the great swirling cloud of chatter, opinion, argument and on-the-ground experience that makes the development scene so fascinating.
The blog will include regular contributions from Duncan Green, prompted by events, trips and things I read, or the debates I engage in on a daily basis. But it will also include a range of guest bloggers, and it will only work if others get involved – that makes the difference between this being a real discussion, and a barren cyberspace version of those delusional souls on soapboxes, ranting away to a non-existent audience at Hyde Park’s ‘speakers’ corner’ in London.
The blog is co-written and maintained by Duncan Green, strategic adviser for Oxfam GB, author of ‘From Poverty to Power‘, ‘How Change Happens’ and Professor in Practice at the London School of Economics. He’s also a lead educator for the free online course Make Change Happen, developed by Oxfam with the Open University.
