DevRes: Development Research Conference


RETHINKING DEVELOPMENT: What kind of 'development' is wanted for today's world? The idea, study, and policy field of 'development' emerged in the 1940s, in a time of decolonization, the Cold War, and Euro-centric high modernism. Seventy years later the scene is one of new emerging economies, migration crises, multiculturalism, climate change, and new patterns of infectious and chronic diseases. Given such profound transformations, do we need, again, to rethink 'development'?
