Rt Hon. Justine Greening MP, Secretary of State for International Development will be visiting the University of Warwick on 1st May 2014 to deliver the inaugural International Development Annual Public Lecture.
The lecture will take place at 4:40pm – 6:00pm on 1st May 2014 in the University of Warwick’s Zeeman Building. The address will be followed by a drinks reception and 'international development marketplace' that will
take place between 6:00pm – 7:00pm.
The Secretary of State will be speaking on “The Girl Effect: Why tackling gender inequality can transform the developing world”. DfID’s strategy highlights four areas of intervention – maternal mortality, access to economic resources, education and prevention of violence against girls and women. DfID also supports women’s political empowerment strategies. How far has this strategy been successful? What are the challenges, especially in this time of a global economic crisis that girls and women in the global South continue to face? These questions and more will be addressed in the lecture and the Q&A that will follow.
After the Secretary of State’s address, there will be a drinks reception in
the Zeeman ‘street’ area outside the lecture hall. This will also feature an “International Development market place” where colleagues and students from across the University will be able to showcase and discuss some of the fantastic work and initiatives taking place at Warwick. DfID’s International Citizen Service Programme (ICS) and Warwick’s International Development MA programmes will also be represented.
