EADI – 2014 Partner Organization of the City of Bonn

In 2014 European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes (EADI) has the honour of partnering with the City of Bonn. During this year, EADI will also hold its 40th anniversary celebrations. Every year since the year 2000, the City of Bonn partners with an international organization with its headquarters in Bonn showcasing Bonn as a hub of international organizations and giving the limelight to an organization to present its causes and concerns.

EADI has chosen the theme of inequality one of the biggest global challenges of our time, which in its various facets, will punctuate the events lined up for the partnership throughout 2014. With the build-up of events and deliberations towards the formulation of a global development framework in the year 2015, inequality within and between countries will undoubtedly dominate the agenda of governments world-wide.
