OPHI to participate in panel on multidimensional poverty at DSA conference

OPHI Researcher Suman Seth will be taking part in a panel discussion on ‘Power of Evidence on Multidimensional Poverty and Poverty Dynamics’ on 16 November 2013 at the 2013 Development Studies Association Conference.

Six papers will be presented during the session, including Seth and OPHI Director Sabina Alkire’s paper ‘Analysis of Inequality across Multidimensionally Poor and Population Subgroups for Counting Approaches’.

The 60-minute discussion that follows will focus on: how aid architecture has shaped notions of rigour and accountability; how evidence-based policy making can represent a new form of governmentality; and how evaluation frameworks and methodologies can respond to the more fluid and context-specific formulations of the MDGs post-2015.

The session will take place at 11.15am in room CM04. Click here for the full conference programme.

Oxford University’s Department for International Development will have a stand at the conference, with selected publications available.
