General Conferences

Since 1975, each of the triennial conferences have focused on themes of topical interest, and assembled over 500 participants. These conferences are the Association's public forum for debate and research. The General Conference of EADI is a major European event devoted to the topical theme of development.

EADI ISS General Conference 2020: Solidarity, Peace, and Social Justice 29 June - 2 July 2020 International Institute of Social Studies (ISS), The Hague (Netherlands), postponed to 5-8 July 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.

We look forward to an exciting and inspiring gathering of development researchers, activists and practitioners from all over the world.
