The EADI Working Group on Multinational Corporations" invites you to a workshop on global value chains with the aim of organising a special issue in a renowned journal in 2022:

Global value chains have been proliferating in the global economy, and embrace the activities of an increasing number of industries and more and more locations in an increasing number of countries. Without including global value chains in the analysis, we cannot really understand numerous developments in the world economy. Multinational companies are the key and leading actors in global value chains. Download the programme

With Jean-Benoît Falisse: Mainstream development policies often promote citizens committees to oversee basic social services. Such committees require influence over, and legitimacy among, service providers and citizens to perform their roles, which local elites can help or hinder. Using a mixed-methods approach, this  talk analyses the situation in 251 health facility committees in Burundi, part of which benefited from interventions designed to bolster their relationship with local leaders.

This years' workshop is entitled "Development studies and climate change: ways forward for curriculum building".

Applications are now closed

As the effects of climate change become more and more visible, so does the necessity to incorporate teaching on this matter in development studies curricula. So far, while the effects of climate change are often discussed in international development courses, the approach remains topical and usually embedded within the traditional teaching frames. This workshop will discuss how programmes in development studies could include a stronger component relating to climate change so that it becomes as legitimate a building block as other components. Challenges related to inter- or trans-disciplinarity will also be discussed, given that a change in study programmes implies greater familiarity with disciplines outside the traditional frame of ‘social sciences’ (such natural sciences, or sustainability studies). As usual, the workshop will consist of a...

We will be happy to present a programme on selected challenges in development research: Safety and security for researchers in difficult settings; influencing research funding policies; and academic freedom. The EADI Directors’ Meeting will once more connect research institutes for more effective co-operation by sharing ideas, identifying common problems, discussing new trends. The key is networking. In Europe, there is no better occasion for institute directors to meet, exchange and discuss.

Green bonds are among the most recent financial instruments to ‘join the ball’ of financing for climate change adaptation and mitigation. Green Bonds are nothing but a new form of raising debt and are increasingly being promoted throughout the Global South as a low cost and appealing way for public and private actors to access liquidity and contribute to climate change mitigation and (although in a limited way) adaptation.

Solidarity, Peace, and Social Justice - EADI/ISS Conference, online, 5-8 July 2021

Read more: Solidarity, Peace, and Social Justice - EADI/ISS Conference, online, 5-8 July 2021
05 Jul 2021

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. Solidarity is essential for any process of social change. Based on mutually shared interests and human values, solidarity can be extremely powerful yet can also be easily undermined in an era of fake news and (electronically) manipulated elections. Peace and social justice are similarly important values in (as well as aspired outcomes of) struggles or transformation processes in which solidarity is key.
