Cash Transfers in Africa: A New Approach to Poverty Alleviation?

February 16, 2022 at 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

This talk sponsored by Carolina Public Humanities will be given by ASC Co-Director and Professor of Public Policy, Sudhanshu (Ashu) Handa as a hybrid event offered both in person and on Zoom.

This hybrid lecture series will travel around the world to explore topics of current interest. Lectures will be held 4:30–6:00 pm on Wednesdays. Your registration fee of $20 ($15 for GAA) lets you attend in person at Flyleaf Books or virtually via Zoom.  A Season Pass to all 8 lectures is available for $120 ($90 GAA). Tuition for virtual viewing is free for K-12 teachers.

This series has long been the Carolina Public Humanities’ forum for “topics in the news,” and they continue that tradition with eight talks that speak to challenges across the globe, often subjects that are difficult to discuss in a heated political environment. Each lecture will be accompanied by a question and answer session with the presenter. Please be sure to verify the dates and times for all CPH events this spring as circumstances change quickly.
