The post-2015 Development Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals. The workshop will take place on 25-26 June 2015 at the University of East London, UK. Deadline for abstracts: 16th March 2015.

We are pleased to announce this workshop encouraging researchers to reflect on how their own work can contribute to: (a) a better understanding of which goals to include in the post-2015 development agenda; (b) a better explanation on how one or more of the SDGs can be more effectively achieved; and (c) a critical exploration of what roles different development actors can play in achieving one or more of these goals. We seek to explore questions such as: Are the goals relevant and to whom? How should we engage with them as academics and as researchers wanting to do good research and have our voices heard?

Authors are invited to submit abstracts for papers which will outline their current work and relate it to the SDGs. The workshop and papers are meant as spaces for reflection rather than highly polished final versions though they too are welcome. The workshop is open to researchers, practitioners, students and academics, from across disciplines and areas of work.
