A Christian vision of ‘development’

Author: Patrick Watt

The Las Casas Institute Annual Lecture 2020

Traditional approaches to social and economic ‘development’ are being questioned in a world where hundreds of millions of people live in extreme poverty, while humankind also consumes beyond its environmental limits.

Patrick Watt is the Policy and Campaigns Director at Christian Aid, and has advocated and written widely on international development, both for Non-Governmental Organisations and for the World Bank.
