The Humanitarian Centre is excited to invite you to:

Participation, Technology and Development: An interactive discussion with Prof. Robert Chambers and Dr Alistair Cockburn

This event will bring together leading experts in the participatory approach to international development and software development fields;

Prof. Robert Chambers: “Since the 1980s, he has been one of the leading advocates for putting the poor, destitute and marginalised at the centre of the processes of development policy. The widespread acceptance of a “participatory” approach is in part due to his work” David Simon–‘Fifty key thinkers in development’

Dr Alistair Cockburn: is an expert in what is called agile development, co-authoring the Manifesto for Agile Software Development and the project leadership Declaration of Inter-dependence. He wrote the Jolt-Productivity Award winning book on the subject, Agile Software Development and was named one of “The All-Time Top 150 i-Technology Heroes” in 2007.

While participatory approaches in international development and Agile development share similar outlooks, the two sets of thinking have not yet been directly compared. This event will spark a new dialogue and inspire further thinking.

The audience will be invited to participate in the discussion and debate.
