Research Student MSc in International DevelopmentPoverty, inequality and development


Location: Birmingham, UK


I am Bashir Omar from Sudanese origin and A Dutch national living in the UK since 2010.  I have finished my degree in Oil, Gas and Energy management at Coventry University in 2016. I carried on further  studying MSc in International Development (Poverty, Inequality and development). I believe doing sustainable development starts with the basics of sharing knowledge at all levels. Inclusion and participatory approaches (“bottom-up”) are the shortest way of achieving this.
