Finding the Good

You are here

8 June, 2018 to 9 June, 2018

Finding the Good Finding the Good is about bringing academics and practitioners together to share ethical international development ideas and practices.  

The event will make a constructive contribution to problems of how to advance social justice, inclusion and human rights in international development efforts.  With escalating challenges to fundamental human dignity and social inclusion, this project will expand the space for communities to find the ‘good’ in the current era.   

Sessions will help to ignite and sustain an ecosystem in which dialogue between scholarly insights and practical development work will, ultimately, improve the participation of people experiencing poverty, social marginalization, discrimination, and oppression.
