The IGP's Director’s Seminars Series Autumn 2019

Tuesday 16 April, 2024 |

The IGP's Director's Seminars series are public events hosted by the UCL Institute for Global Prosperity, and open to all.

**Please register for each Director's Seminar on Eventbrite. The links for each event are listed above their description.**

The IGP's Director's Seminars are an opportunity for audiences to get an in-depth theoretical perspective on sustainable and inclusive prosperity. These Seminars are given by academics who are pushing for new ways of thinking and new ways of researching society's grand challenges.

The Director’s Seminars for the Autumn term 2019 will explore the way mass displacement intersects with the global challenges affecting global prosperity. Rather than migration being the subject, we explore the causes, conditions and consequences of displacement; from food security, climate change, livelihoods, conflict and natural resource production, our lectures will explore how mass displacement is a symptom of structural inequalities in one place, which then exacerbate inequalities in another place. How do we move from these shifting inequalities, displacing peoples and communities to a stable, just and prosperous world? This term’s seminars will continue our prosperity conversations that aim to build alternative stories, narratives and understandings that change the way we conceive global prosperity when people are on the move.
