Upcoming events

Next week I'll be presenting on poverty reduction and elimination in Brazil in London.  I'm booked to present at the Institute for the Study of the Americas on Tuesday (28) and at a symposium organised by Middlesex University in Trafalgar Square on Wednesday (29).  That said, I have no idea how long I will be able to present for - I'm still waiting to hear back!

Anyway, this should hopefully be an interesting exercise and pay-off for the last few weeks.  I've been giving up my Fridays and Sundays to prepare this work and have become quite interested in the topic.  Maybe I can develop it further after the events into a possible journal article.  The subject is also complementing other work I'm doing on participation and grassroots development among Palestinians.  I find that reading on one helps the other.  After next week's events I aim to post a summary of what I said and the response to it.
