The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has forced EADI and ISS to postpone their joint conference planned for late June/early July (in The Hague) to next year (5-8 July 2021).

This implies that the Development Dialogue (PhD conference) as well as other events linked to the EADI-ISS conference also will be postponed to next year. The unanimous decision by EADI and ISS also was driven by the conviction to leave no-one behind: especially the Global South is hit hard by the current crisis. The EADI-ISS Conference Team is convinced all preparations and lessons of the past years will contribute to an even more successful and inspiring event in 2021.

Our priority will be to raise additional funding to actively involve Southern-based researchers, as these are mostly affected. All participants with accepted papers, panel convenors, as well as registered participants will be informed separately over the next few weeks. EADI will also approach panel convenors individually to critically review their planned panels and to explore whether a new call for panels and papers is needed. Registered participants can choose to get a refund, or they can reregister for 2021 at no extra cost. Please follow the websites of EADI and ISS for any updates in the coming months. Meanwhile, if you have any questions or suggestions, please contact us.
