The Graduate Institute of International Development, Agriculture and Economics (GIIDAE)was proud to launch its first GIIDAE Alumni Lecture, featuring guest speaker James Deane, Director of Policy and Research at BBC Media Action, on Wednesday 30 May 2018 in the Agriculture Building, Whiteknights Campus.
This special event brought students, past and present, together to debate key issues of the 21st century. Hosted by Sir David Bell, Vice-Chancellor, University of Reading, James Deane delivered an inspiring lecture outlining how social and behavioural change communication has evolved over more than three decades. He highlighted where they have succeeded and failed, and why the increasing complex and rapidly evolving field of communication, media and development holds great potential for the future.
