Events

The Centre for Global Development hosts and delivers numerous development related events.

Each year we hold our Annual Lecture and invite a prominent academic or senior figure from the development field to speak on a current development issue

Our popular Summer School provides an opportunity for students from the global north and south to come together and experience an intensive week of learning about development from an interdisciplinary teaching team. In 2016 CGD teamed up with EADI to deliver the school.

We also hold collaborative events and lectures with partners within the University of Leeds, including the Sustainability Research Institute (SRI), LUCAS, water@leeds, Priestly Centre for Climate Research and Applied Institute for Research in Economics (AIRE), and from outside the Univeristy of Leeds.
