Rethinking the Power of Silence in Insecure & Gendered Sites

The lecture will explore the power of silence in a world where voice is too often privileged as the ultimate sign of power. Inspired by the complex literature interrogating silence, challenging the assumption that silence is always a sign of disempowerment, and explore the many ways in which silence can be empowering in a complex neo-liberal and postcolonial world.

Towards an International Political Ergonomics

International Political Ergonomics (iPER) is a novel research programme focused on achieving positive-political change through the ergonomic (re)design of world politics. The approach is grounded on a shift across IR that recognizes its epistemic (i.e. knowledge-producing) core is often inadequate to achieve change.

Canada-Colombia cooperation

Rigorous evaluation is essential to improving international engagement in fragile and conflict-affected situations (FCAS). In recent years, CIPS/FSRN has hosted several events on the evaluation of cooperation in FCAS like Afghanistan and Haiti. The forthcoming evaluation of Canada-Colombia cooperation, by Global Affairs Canada, offers an opportunity to learn about Canada’s engagement in a distinct context — since Colombia is a middle-income country with a nationally owned peace process.

Developmental Evaluation: Mapping the Practice

Developmental evaluation (DE) has become a prominent approach to program evaluation, distinct from formative and summative. DE has a fluid, collaborative and integrative character, yet it also has structure. We’ll explore a visual map of 7 components of DE practice developed through a mixed methods study, and discuss the role of DE in program innovation.

Speaker : Lydia Yilma

English

In exploring how parents in Ethiopia know and care for their children with autism, this talk focuses on listening as a behaviour that represents parents' expectations of obedience. In the case of children with autism, this behaviour is lacking, changing what parents expect from and how they care for their children. I explore these evolving expectations and ways of caring through parents' personal experiences.

Lecture followed by opportunity for questions
