EADI members and institutions herewith express their concern about the increasing restrictions imposed on scholars and the academic freedom as well as the freedom of speech in many countries, including within Europe.

We are shocked to witness the prosecution of those who practice democracy as an integral and substantial part of good governance and civil rights.

We will explore how best we can support those who as scholars are the victims of undemocratic, authoritarian rule and are prosecuted because of their democratic engagement.

We appeal to governments and academic institutions alike to provide space and shelter for scholars in need.

EADI member institutions are encouraged to collaborate in the efforts to accommodate those who are robbed of the means to continue their work.

As some of our mentors are also active in the Working Groups, opportunities for further collaboration may arise.

Do we as researchers and, more importantly, as humans, want to be part of an academic world where we "argue" for the sake of arguments as if it were a mere exercise, or do we realize the importance of the arguments we are making and their normativity in shaping realities?

Development Studies and the SDGs - Mapping an Agenda (pdf)

This paper explores the concepts of development and development studies and their links to Agenda 2030. It revisits earlier efforts towards a new development paradigm and thereby looks beyond the SDGs. It examines the efforts towards sustainable development as a concept within an emancipatory discourse, which should be rooted in global solidarity, justice and human dignity. It thereby advocates an agenda, which aims at rather complementing if not transcending Agenda 2030, instead of being limited to full compliance within the confinement of the SDGs. This is motivated and guided by the interest to maintain ownership by scholars over development studies instead of surrendering the power of definition to the political and aid bureaucracy.
