Mobilising Global Voices 2019: Perspectives from the Global South Conference

Event date Event time Event location
27/02/2019 - 28/02/2019 Start Time: 5:00 pm Houses of Parliament, London, SW1A 0AA

This conference on Inclusive International Development Research and Policy is being organised by the AHRC, in collaboration with the UKRI Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) partners and the International Development Committee of the UK Parliament.

Mobilising Global Voices 2019 is aimed at the research, and evidence hearing communities within government in the UK, and internationally. It seeks to bring together the voices and perspectives of AHRC GCRF funded researchers, cultural and development organisations, and diverse partners in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) to UK Parliament, to discuss how arts and humanities research in international development can make a strong contribution to Parliamentary Committees and international development policy-making and practice.

The Conference will provide opportunities to share research insights and findings on three thematic areas:

  • forced displacement
  • building resilience to climate change
  • global inclusion and diversity within policy-making and research collaboration.

The conference also aims to facilitate meaningful dialogue on North-South research partnerships and ways in which knowledge produced in the Global South can be part of evidence giving processes within Parliamentary Committees. 

This event builds on the Mobilising Global Voices 2017: AHRC International Development Summit.
