Networks & microfinance


Networks between organisations -this is the object of a conference I am co-organising on Global Partnerships in Microfinance, to be held at the University of Greenwich, London, on 6-7 September 2010.

Microfinance aims to alleviate poverty -and should do so, it is widely believed today, in a sustainable fashion. To achieve this, microfinance institutions collaborate with a number of other stakeholders in the industry, be they  commercial banks, international financial institutions, rating houses, charities, donor governments or regulators.

In this perspective, the conference aims to explore different possible partnerships in microfinance and to discuss their potential and challenges. Both academics and practitioners will participate, presenting papers and posters.

A different look at networks this time -between organisations rather than individuals, but still within the framework of social embeddedness, due to the non-for-profit goals of much microfinance.

All the slides used for presentations, full papers and posters are available here.
