The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) hosted an International Development Summit- ‘Mobilising Global Voices’, at the British Library, London on Wednesday 7th June 2017.

The Summit aimed to showcase and discuss the unique and important contribution that AHRC-funded research (and of the arts and humanities more widely) makes to policy and practice in International Development and to cross-disciplinary and collaborative research which addresses a range of global challenges.

The theme of the summit – ‘Mobilising Global Voices’ – indicated an aspiration to add to previous events and consultations by bringing the voices and perspectives of researchers, partners, cultural and development organisations and diverse communities in Low and Middle countries more strongly into debates about how arts and humanities research might contribute to international development.

Sarita Malik (PI), Churnjeet Mahn (Co-I) and Gurmeet Rai (community partner) took part in the ‘Mobilising Community Voices’ panel, chaired by Professor George McKay (University of East Anglia). You can watch their presentation below.
