After two successful in-person workshops for communications professionals in the wider field of Development Studies over the last two years, this year’s workshop and get-together of the EADI Research Communications Working Group is going online. In order not to overload participants with virtual input and contribute to zoom fatigue, we have decided to keep our sessions short and concise, with longer breaks in-between. Like in our previous workshops, we place a strong focus on interactive exchange based on the ideas and needs of participants.

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.
