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. Can Christianity offer both a critique of mainstream approaches to development, and a more positive vision of human flourishing?
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.
