Ethics and justice are central to development issues, but at present, there are no dedicated ethical guidelines for development research. The DSA 2019 Conference "Opening up Development" (Milton Keynes, 19-21 June) is a good oopportunity to start changing this. EADI and DSA are jointly committed to producing such guidelines, and this panel will feed into that process. We look forward to receiving interesting contributions! Sessions will be interactive and participatory.

We wish you a happy festive season and will be back on 2 January

For this workshop on Global Citizenship Education we invite presentations, papers and other forms of contributions from researchers, educators, civil society actors and others who are interested in the topics.

We invite actors and researchers to come together in fruitful dialogue on the role of global citizenship education in sustainable development.

New Working Group on Gender Justice

02 Nov 2018

Call for participation: The newly constituted Working Group on Gender Justice is inviting collaborators from all disciplines. The Gender Justice Working Group of EADI is a group of scholars working, writing and thinking on all issues related to gender justice. We feel that a shift from gender mainstreaming to gender justice in international development theory, policy and practice contexts is a worthwhile point of departure for discussion and focus. Therefore, we are opening this space/ initiative as a forum for scholars and researchers with an interest in the relationship between gender justice and international development.

No Development Without Freedom revisited

17 Oct 2018

In September 2017, EADI issued a Statement “No Development Without Freedom”. It expressed “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”. Academic freedom includes the choice of subjects for research and teaching on relevant aspects of society and social developments. We therefore join the critical voices when it comes to the decision by the government in Hungary to eliminate Gender Studies from the academic courses offered at universities.
