Preview of our event with SOAS Labour tonight: Gender, International Development and UK Aid

15 March 2012

LCID & SOAS International Development Flyer

To mark International Women’s Day, LCID working with SOAS Labour is pleased to be hosting

‘Gender, International Development and UK Aid’.

Speakers

  • Baroness Scotland, Patron of Eliminate Domestic Violence Global Foundation
  • Amy Whalley, UNICEF UK
  • Claire Hickson, International Development Specialist
  • Katy Woods, The White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood
  • Kruti Buch, Asian Foundation for Philanthropy

When – TONIGHT at 7.00pm
Where – Room B102, Brunei Gallery, SOAS, Thornhaugh Street, Russell Sq, London.

Please be aware that the event will be preceded by a networking event that will bring together SOAS students and those interested in development with NGOs including Unicef, One, Save the Children and
Oxfam.

Following International Women’s day the purpose of the event is to discuss what can be done to further the progress of women internationally and what action the UK government should take on this. At LCID we believe that international development should be a mainstream political issue. That is why we want to engage with those who see issues such as gender inequality in the developing world as separate from the political debate in the UK. Our purpose is to share the ideas & policies, events and campaigns of organisations (particularly NGOs) within the Labour movement working on international development. To that end we have brought together members of the Labour team with campaigners, academics and policy experts.
