GDI launches its brand new podcast

(4 August 2017)

The Global Development Institute (GDI) has launched a podcast series bringing listeners the latest thinking, insight and debate in development studies. The series will feature lectures, seminars and workshops from across the Institute, as well as discussions between world leading experts in development studies.

The first few episodes are online and include GDI Executive Director, Professor David Hulme, discussing his book ‘Should Rich Nations Help the Poor?’ and Director of the International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD), Dr Saleemul Huq, on how the least developed countries are negotiating climate change with the UN.

Upcoming episodes will feature a lecture from Professor Richard Heeks on the move from ICT4D to ‘Digital Development’, and a conversation between Professor Diana Mitlin and Dr Mercedes González de la Rocha on urban development and inequalities.
