Author Biography

Duncan Green, Senior Strategic Adviser, Oxfam Great Britain and Professor in Practice, London School of Economics

Duncan Green is Oxfam GB's Senior Strategic Adviser. He also teaches on international development at the London School of Economics, where he is a Professor in Practice. His blog is one of the most widely read on international development, and is named after his book From Poverty to Power (2nd ed., 2012). How Change Happens contains the accumulated experience of years spent engaged in the field, researching and writing about reducing poverty and combating injustice and, as the author says, trying to, "do justice to the complexity of the world, while still believing there is a story about how it can be changed for the better."
