We are happy to announce that the Dudley Seers Lecture which precedes our upcoming General Conference "Solidarity, Peace and Social Justice" will be held by Rohini Pande, Henry J. Heinz II Professor of Economics and Director of the Economic Growth Center, Yale University. Since 2008, the Dudley Seers Lecture has been an inherent part of the EADI General Conferences. Remembering one of the founding members and the first EADI president, this lecture allows a renowned speaker to formally set the tone for the debates at and around the conference.

Pande's talk will explore how power structures - within households, communities and countries – are determined by informal and formal institutions. It will analyze how inequality of power and economic inequality interact within these institutions. Register here

There is a lot of interest in advocacy in the development sector. It is commonly accepted that projects in themselves are poorly geared to tackling structural causes of problems like poverty and injustice, and advocacy is taken by many as a necessary for addressing these structural causes.

However, despite all the interest in localization, and the acceptance that many important changes need to take place at country level rather than only in the Global North or international levels, there is little attention to how advocacy works in different national and sub-national contexts – the contexts in which many ‘partner organizations’ work.

Avec Hélène Roux: Fondée sur l’étude de divers conflits socio-environnementaux (barrages hydroélectriques ; complexes touristiques ; extraction minière ou programmes de conservation), la présentation porte sur le décalage entre les orientations liées au développement provenant « du haut » (les institutions supranationales, les États nationaux) et les aspirations provenant « du bas » (les populations concernées).
