| Friday 3rd July 2015. | Seminar Room 11, Rendall Building
One Day Research Workshop at the University of Liverpool Management School (ULMS) organised by Development Research Initiative (DRIVE), a network of researchers and teachers in development studies at the University of Liverpool.
Development finance, arguably, is one of the most intensely researched, yet one of the most debated areas in development research. It covers a very broad range of topics from overseas development assistance, access to international financial markets, foreign direct investment, the role of banks and stock markets, as well as microcredit, remittance flows and internal sources such as trade credit.
The focus of this workshop is to examine the issues and challenges faced by developing countries when financing their own economic development. The workshop will draw from the research expertise of members of DRIVE and external speakers.
Among the confirmed speakers are: Dr. Rashmi Arora (Bradford); Professor James Copestake (Bath); Dr. Ralitza Dimova (Manchester); Dr. Supriya Garikipati (ULMS), Professor Paul Mosley (Sheffield) and Dr. Stephen Spratt (IDS).
The event is free to attend for members of DRIVE, but registration is required for catering purposes.
Non-members will be charged a small fee to cover expenses (£50).

Commodity Markets and the Developing Countries: One Day Workshop at the University of Liverpool
| Friday 11 July 2014 |
The Development Research Initiative (DRIVE) at the University of Liverpool will hold a one day workshop on Commodity Markets and the Developing Countries on Friday 11 July 2014. The workshop will address a number of topics surrounding the rapidly evolving roles of commodity exports, demand pressures on the existing commodity supply and associated international price movements. Commodity export specialisations, once generally held to trap developing countries in poverty, have become part of a more complex and multi-facetted market process with ambiguous implications for commodity exporters and importing economies. This workshop will approach this topic from a number of diverse angles.
