Wednesday, March 1, 2017 - 17:00 to 19:00

Sanitation is now a central policy concern in India, as confirmed by the emphasis put on the Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM) that aims to make India clean (swachh). SBM includes two different components for urban and rural areas. The rural area component is a direct continuation of the preceding policy frameworks for rural sanitation but implemented with added vigour. The central elements of rural sanitation interventions are behaviour change and the construction of individual toilets. In effect, this boils down to creating ‘demand’ for toilets so as ensure the end of open defecation.

Tuesday, March 7, 2017 - 17:00 to 19:00

The topic of this seminar will be 'Capitalism and the Sea: Sovereignty, Territory and Accumulation in the Global Ocean' as part of the SOAS Department of Development Studies and Bloomsbury DTC for the Social Sciences seminar series.

Since Development Studies was first taught at SOAS 25 years ago, the SOAS Department of Development Studies has provided critical perspectives on a wide range of issues that have gone on to shape development theory and practice. This panel brings together specialists in different areas of Development Studies to discuss what we have learnt about development amidst crisis and instability in the last quarter of a century, and to celebrate the contribution of the SOAS Department of Development Studies to key debates in the field.
