With Jean-Benoît Falisse: Mainstream development policies often promote citizens committees to oversee basic social services. Such committees require influence over, and legitimacy among, service providers and citizens to perform their roles, which local elites can help or hinder. Using a mixed-methods approach, this  talk analyses the situation in 251 health facility committees in Burundi, part of which benefited from interventions designed to bolster their relationship with local leaders.

The EADI Working Group on Multinational Corporations" invites you to a workshop on global value chains with the aim of organising a special issue in a renowned journal in 2022:

Global value chains have been proliferating in the global economy, and embrace the activities of an increasing number of industries and more and more locations in an increasing number of countries. Without including global value chains in the analysis, we cannot really understand numerous developments in the world economy. Multinational companies are the key and leading actors in global value chains. Download the programme

This years' workshop is entitled "Development studies and climate change: ways forward for curriculum building".

Applications are now closed

As the effects of climate change become more and more visible, so does the necessity to incorporate teaching on this matter in development studies curricula. So far, while the effects of climate change are often discussed in international development courses, the approach remains topical and usually embedded within the traditional teaching frames. This workshop will discuss how programmes in development studies could include a stronger component relating to climate change so that it becomes as legitimate a building block as other components. Challenges related to inter- or trans-disciplinarity will also be discussed, given that a change in study programmes implies greater familiarity with disciplines outside the traditional frame of ‘social sciences’ (such natural sciences, or sustainability studies). As usual, the workshop will consist of a...

We will be happy to present a programme on selected challenges in development research: Safety and security for researchers in difficult settings; influencing research funding policies; and academic freedom. The EADI Directors’ Meeting will once more connect research institutes for more effective co-operation by sharing ideas, identifying common problems, discussing new trends. The key is networking. In Europe, there is no better occasion for institute directors to meet, exchange and discuss.

EADI Virtual Dialogue: Indebting the green transition: critical notes on the expansion of green bonds in the South, 3 November, 15.00 CET

Green bonds are among the most recent financial instruments to ‘join the ball’ of financing for climate change adaptation and mitigation. Green Bonds are nothing but a new form of raising debt and are increasingly being promoted throughout the Global South as a low cost and appealing way for public and private actors to access liquidity and contribute to climate change mitigation and (although in a limited way) adaptation.

Solidarity, Peace, and Social Justice - EADI/ISS Conference, online, 5-8 July 2021

Read more: Solidarity, Peace, and Social Justice - EADI/ISS Conference, online, 5-8 July 2021
05 Jul 2021

The central theme of the conference is “Solidarity, Peace and Social Justice”. Together, these three concepts represent our aspirations for approaches to global development that address inequality, poverty and political marginalisation, also in connection with climate change and other environmental threats. Solidarity is essential for any process of social change. Based on mutually shared interests and human values, solidarity can be extremely powerful yet can also be easily undermined in an era of fake news and (electronically) manipulated elections. Peace and social justice are similarly important values in (as well as aspired outcomes of) struggles or transformation processes in which solidarity is key.

01 Jul 2021

We are happy to announce that the Dudley Seers Lecture which precedes our upcoming General Conference "Solidarity, Peace and Social Justice" will be held by Rohini Pande, Henry J. Heinz II Professor of Economics and Director of the Economic Growth Center, Yale University. Since 2008, the Dudley Seers Lecture has been an inherent part of the EADI General Conferences. Remembering one of the founding members and the first EADI president, this lecture allows a renowned speaker to formally set the tone for the debates at and around the conference.

Pande's talk will explore how power structures - within households, communities and countries – are determined by informal and formal institutions. It will analyze how inequality of power and economic inequality interact within these institutions.

Avec Hélène Roux: Fondée sur l’étude de divers conflits socio-environnementaux (barrages hydroélectriques ; complexes touristiques ; extraction minière ou programmes de conservation), la présentation porte sur le décalage entre les orientations liées au développement provenant « du haut » (les institutions supranationales, les États nationaux) et les aspirations provenant « du bas » (les populations concernées).

With Eileen Kuttab

This lecture will briefly describe the Israeli colonial project of dispossession and de-development on occupied Palestine, followed by a discussion on the emerging Palestinian Authority (PA) and its impact on the economy through a gender lens.

Development choices have been governed by different objectives, namely stabilization of the peace process, control of the Israeli economy over the territories and the mainstreaming of neoliberal economics, resulting in multi-faceted socio-economic deteriorations.
