Reducing Poverty and Building Peace in Colombia: Inextricably Linked Processes
The Oxford Department of International Development and the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) are pleased to announce a Distinguished Public Lecture on 12 November.
Former President of Colombia and Nobel Peace Laureate Juan Manuel Santos will speak on Reducing Poverty and Building Peace in Colombia: Inextricably Linked Processes, focusing on the role of robust leadership in dealing with these two highly complex and interlinked issues.
Former President Santos is a distinguished public figure and an influential leader, well known for his role in the recent Colombian peace process. During his term in office, which has just closed, President Santos took leadership in global efforts to reduce multidimensional poverty, including co-founding the Multidimensional Poverty Peer Network (MPPN) in 2013, a South-South initiative of policy-makers working to fight poverty in all its forms and dimensions.
