DPP 30-year anniversary event

Opening up Development

This event took place on 24th June 2014 at 11:00am (10:00 GMT)
Berrill Lecture Theatre, The Open University, Walton Hall Campus, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

Since its establishment in 1984, DPP has elaborated a broad perspective on international development in our teaching and research activities, linking these with policy and practice.  We focus on:

  • Links between global historical processes and development interventions
  • Research that aims to shape policy and practice
  • Teaching that empowers students to engage with the contemporary challenges of development

Today we will celebrate our 30th anniversary with a special event.  Everyone is invited to attend.  Save the date!
