UK Leadership in International Development

Law Building - Lecture Theatre 2 (Room 115)
Thursday 22 November 2018 (16:30-18:00)

This event is now at full capacity. 


Former UK Secretary of State for International Development, Andrew Mitchell MP

Increased domestic opposition to UK aid spending, and potential changes in foreign policy following the Brexit referendum, has raised questions about the future of UK aid policy and whether the country will continue to be a global leader in international development. In this talk, Andrew Mitchell MP for Sutton Coldfield, will discuss UK leadership in international development drawing on his experience as UK Secretary of State for International Development (2010-2012), and his broader and on-going involvement with various international development initiatives. This will be followed by a question and answer session with the audience.

The IDD Guest Seminar Series brings scholars and practitioners working on international development to the University of Birmingham to share their latest research and ideas. All seminars are open to staff, students, and the generalpublic.
