The University of Amsterdam is hosting two important events to honour late Ryszard Kapuściński.

Kapuscinski Development Lectures
Top global thinkers from around the world deliver lectures on development in European Union countries. The series “Kapuscinski development lectures” is jointly organized by the European Commission, the United Nations Development Programme and this year hosted by the University of Amsterdam.

  • Kapuściński Development Lecture 2013:

“Changing ideas and practices for making cities fair” Professor Susan Parnell, University of Cape Town
This lecture traces the divergent and contradictory intellectual and practice based traditions that the notion of fairness in the city implies, including the work on urban equity, justice, redistribution, the public good and the good city.

  • Date: Tuesday, 18.06.2013
  • Time: 15:00 – 18:00 (lecture will start at 15:15)
  • Venue: M 1.01, Plantage Muidergracht 12, Amsterdam
  • Registration: here

The Kapuscinski Development Lecture, hosted by the University of Amsterdam, will be the highlight of the Summer Institute on Global Poverty and Inclusive Development. This one-week course for development researchers and professionals will address new theories on the dynamics of poverty and shed new light on the promotion of more inclusive development trajectories.

  • Exposition: “Ryszard Kapuściński. The Poet of Reportage”

The exposition “Ryszard Kapuściński. The Poet of Reportage” offers an compelling insight into the life and work of the well-known Polish writer-reporter-poet-photographer Ryszard Kapuściński. Kapuściński’s literary and journalistic work is characterized by a strong focus on historic events in the developing world, and by a truthful interest in the human element in large world events. The exposition features this by displaying a series of pictures made by Kapuściński and by highlighting a number of quotes and references to his work.

The exposition was put together in 2007 (the year of Kapuściński’s death) and has traveled around the world since then in different language versions. Previous exposition places include among others Frankfurt, Beijing, Taipei, Toronto, Chicago en Lisbon.

  • Period & opening hours: 18-27 June, Monday to Friday 9.00-17.30
  • Inauguration: Tuesday 18 June, 17.30 (immediately after the Kapuściński Development Lecture)
