Development Dialogue Seminars

The Development Dialogue Seminar is a seminar series hosted by TIPS. The seminars offer a platform to share views and ideas on specific development issues and alternative policy strategies.

Though the seminar programme has been designed for government officials for whom the themes tackled are of relevance, the seminars fact focuses on a wide range of topical development issues. The themes covered span the informal economy to specific trade negotiation challenges. The seminars also attempts to offer perspectives from other countries in the region and beyond.

Who can attend?

Government officials and others who contribute to policy are targeted by the seminar series but all are welcome, though places are limited.
