This event is a joint event by the IDS Alumni Office and the Brazil IDS Initiative. The Initiative provides focus on a geography at the leading edge of development thinking and practice due to accelerating environmental, economic, political and social change. Led by Alex Shankland, IDS Research Fellow and alumnus (MP20 & DPhil04) and working closely with partners, alumni, and other members of our community in Brazil, our activities span research, learning, teaching and policy work. Its research focus spans development cooperation; social policy, health systems and inequalities; democracy, civil society and governance; food systems, agriculture and rural development; and inclusive business and value chains.
We look forward to co-developing our ideas and plans with you.
