Influencing Change at the Global Level: Q&A on Adapting to the Crisis in Global Governance

October 2, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

This event is open to faculty and students of the BSIA only.

The rise of Trump, Brexit, populism and the retreat from international institutions are jeopardising the progress made on development and climate by NGOs and movements over the past few decades. As a result, the global advocacy industry is struggling to adapt strategies and devise new tactics to continue to influence decision-makers to safe-guard and advance progress.

About the speaker

Kel Currah has worked in global advocacy for twenty years working on the WTO in the late 90s, Make Poverty History in the mid-2000s and the G7 and G20 Summits over the past 10 years. He has worked for World Vision International and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and currently runs a global advocacy consultancy – What World Strategies that works with NGOs, foundations and UN agencies on advocacy initiatives. He will share his experience from the golden age of advocacy to today’s crisis in global governance in a discussion on the current state of change for development and climate.
