Space for Interaction hosts debates on topical and current issues related to poverty, development and social change, held at CEPA premises in an informal setting. The Café series focuses mainly on non-mainstream subjects, targeted towards non academic, non development and the youth. There are 4-6 Café series per year.
The Centre for Poverty Analysis, in collaboration with the Centre for Policy Dialogue (Bangladesh), Sustainable Development Policy Institute (Pakistan) and Practical Action (Sri Lanka), held its 12th annual poverty symposium on the 6th and 7th of November 2013. The symposium aimed to advance and compliment the Southern Voice Initiative (Centre for Policy Dialogue) that has spearheaded the effort to increase southern think tank perspectives and ideas with a strong potential to influence the high-level discussions on the post-2015 development framework.
