Duncan Green is currently Senior Strategic Adviser at Oxfam GB and Professor in Practice at the London School of Economics and has had a longstanding career in global development including in CAFOD and DFID. Among the international development crowd he's increasingly become known as the writer and creator of the 'fun and smart' blog, From Poverty to Power. His posts are followed and read for their thought-provoking topics on gender, politics, environment, finance, human rights and many more. He is influential in bringing into the 'conversation' a multitude of topics on global development into online discussions and at the numerous events he attends. He is author of several books, more notably From Poverty to Power: How Active Citizens and Effective States can change the World (Oxfam 2012) which has received high praise for giving a comprehensive outlook to global poverty. His recent book entitled How Change Happens draws on seven years of daily postings and conversations from the blog.
