What kind of development is required in today's world?

News: Oct 04, 2017

The School of Global Studies and Centre on Global Migration (CGM) will host the next biennial Development Research Conference, sponsored by the Gothenburg Centre of Globalization and Development (GCGD), the Swedish Research Council and Sida.

Rethinking Development is the theme of the conference, which will be held on August 22-23, 2018.

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’?

Call for panels is now open. Deadline for applications is December 3.
