"It remains for us, both individually and as EADI, to base development on the promotion of notions of rights and dignity, advocating and supporting a decent future for all life on earth. This includes responsibilities and obligations towards those, who remain on the receiving end of an anthropocentric age, which violates the intergenerational contract and a social contract with nature. As scholars of Development Studies – and as humans - we need to accept these challenges and work towards contributing to a better future for all. EADI will continue to provide the network, forum and platform for such"

Henning Melber, in his foreword to the EADI Annual Report 2017

The objectives of the programme include educating students in the history and theories of development, familiarising them with different disciplinary perspectives on development, such as those from sociology, anthropology and human geography, acquainting them with the multi-scalar context of development processes, recognising relations between local, regional, national and global levels and teaching them about interaction and unequal power relations between actors within context-specific institutional environments.
