Politics of the Global South (POGS)
POGS brings together scholars exploring a diverse set of important topics, including, but not limited to, aid effectiveness, (sustainable) development, international cooperation, international relations, institutions, political behaviour, conflict, human rights, public administration, and public policy.
The purpose of this invite-only group is to provide a space for such scholars to share early stage work and receive input from those who can provide substantive feedback on issues relating to the developing world. While area studies can often be siloed, we hope to break down these barriers.
We invite scholars interested in the global South from UCL, LSE, KCL, and throughout the greater London area to subscribe to our mailing list to keep up with upcoming POGS seminars.
We run seminars once a term, where scholars can share early stage work and receive input from those who can provide substantive feedback on issues relating to the developing world. Our upcoming seminars:
3 March 2022 - UCL half-day event
10:00 - 14:30
25 May 2022 - UCL-LSE-KCL joint event
The date for this event is tentative
