Professor Nina Laurie, RGS-IBG Busk Medal winner 2020, will draw on current collaborative research fieldwork in Peru on Amazonian peatlands, El Niño and migration, to discuss whether an emphasis on crisis and disaster in development assistance overlooks important lessons around solidarity and opportunity.
Professor Jonathan Rigg, RGS-IBG Victoria Medal winner 2020, will draw on fieldwork in Southeast Asia over almost four decades to explore whether we have the empirical data, conceptual frameworks, theoretical models and methodological tools to gauge and therefore to judge the progress of development in the Asian countryside.
We are monitoring the public health advice on large gatherings, events and use of public transport closely, and will resume physical Monday night lectures when it is safe and feasible to do so. More information about dates and access will be published by the end of October.
