EADI ISS Conference 2020:
Solidarity, Peace, and Social Justice
The European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes (EADI) and the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) announce the 16th EADI General Conference, to be held in The Hague (Netherlands) from Monday 29 June to Thursday 2 July 2020.
The central theme of the conference is “Solidarity, Peace and Social Justice”. Together, these three concepts represent our aspirations for approaches to global development that address inequality, poverty and political marginalisation, also in connection with climate change and other environmental threats.
Call for Panels
We invite conference participants to reflect on any aspect of solidarity, peace, and social justice, such as, but not exclusively:
- How can we give new meanings to solidarity in a period of growing distrust between and within nations and amongst people?
- How can we, as development scholars and practitioners, contribute to peace and social justice in our work?
- How can we find new understandings and/or explanations to the concept of ‘development’, without simply adding new adjectives?
The organisers cordially invite session proposals from researchers, practitioners and activists from NGO/academic networks as well as study/research consortia. The deadline for the submission of session proposals panels is 6 September 2019.
Please see the conference website for further submission details.
The EADI ISS 2020 conference is a partnership between EADI (European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes) and the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) at Erasmus University.
