Ornitologisk praksis som persepsjon av naturen. Om naturopplevelse, kunnskapservervelse og naturhistorisk entusiasme
All are welcome to this open seminar at Litteraturhuset, organised by Asle Toje in cooperation with Norad, Fritt Ord and Centre for Development and the Environment (SUM).
Dan Banik is directing a workshop on the relationship between democracy and poverty as part of the third international conference on Democracy as Idea and Practice, organised by the Research Programme on Democracy.
In this workshop, we wish to question whether certain regimes are better able and equipped to promote economic growth and eradicate poverty than others. In other words, what characterizes the relationship between poverty and democracy? And is there a connection between 'pro-poorness' and 'democracy'?
All are welcome, but we encourage you to register!
The principal objective of the course is to critically review different approaches to food insecurity, which will enable doctoral students to understand key poverty-related concepts and approaches that are currently widespread and influential among major international and national development agencies.
