Economist Duncan Green, the author of From Poverty to Power, proposes a new path to change for activists, nonprofits and aid agencies. His “Power and Systems” approach can help advocates and development agencies engage more flexibly with communities in need of change. Green, a senior strategic adviser at Oxfam and a professor of International Development at the London School of Economics, addresses the theoretical underpinnings of his concept of change, examines how change affects institutions involved in aid or development work, considers the people who embrace activism and examines the implications of his approach to bringing about change. getAbstract believes that government aid workers and development and aid officers in local and international agencies can benefit from learning about this approach to creating change.
