A great many resources – investments, cheap loans and development grants – flow from the wealthiest countries on the planet to the poorest. Despite all of this, little progress is apparent. The world continues to face extreme poverty, escalating differences and huge waves of internal and external refugees. Is there any way out of this vicious circle?
Tomáš Tožička’s lecture will draw on his expertise in the field of regional development and international developmental cooperation, as well as his experiences of working in Angola, Bangladesh, Nicaragua and Zambia.
