Labour's Legacy on International Development: Where we've come from and where we are heading

Attlee Suite, Portcullis House, Westminster
Monday 5 December 2022 (18:30-20:00)

Join Preet Gill MP, Shadow Secretary of State for International Development, Danny Sriskandarajah, Chief Executive of Oxfam GB, Professor David Hudson, Head of the International Development Department, University of Birmingham, Kirsty McNeill, Executive Director of Policy, Advocacy and Campaigns at Save the Children UK, and Nicola Heaton, PhD researcher and Labour councillor to discuss Labour’s legacy 25 years on from the creation of the Department for International Development and what the future holds.

Chaired by Professor Richard Black, Pro-Vice Chancellor, University of Birmingham, the panel will consider what has been achieved, the challenges of the past 25 years and priorities for future UK international development policy. Panel members will highlight practical measures that could build on Labour’s legacy and address the most pressing global challenges, including poverty and inequality, the impacts of climate change and the growth of major conflicts. The event will also provide an opportunity for an audience of development professionals, students and interested members of the public to propose directions for Labour’s international development policy and be a part of this important conversation.

After hearing from our panellists and participating in our Q&A session please join us for a drinks reception as an opportunity to continue discussions and meet our panellists.

We hope to see you there.
