EADI Events

Seminars, Workshops, Conference & more

Our events are at the heart of our engagement with our members and with the general field of Development Studies. Our flagship event, the EADI General Conference, is Europe’s largest gathering of the development research community, and is held every three years. With around 600 participants, opportunities to connect and engage with the latest research abound. Our more frequent thematic workshops and meetings bring together professionals from certain fields for networking and peer-to-peer exchange: the annual Directors’ Meetings, the dedicated workshops for research communicators or coordinators for academic studies programmes, our expert events on specific topics, and events organised by our working groups. In addition, we regularly offer online talks and lectures. Here they are listed in chronological order.
