Create a New Working Group

Call for Activity

EADI invites you to establish a new Working Group or to express your interest in collaborating with an existing EADI Working Group.

EADI has the following types of working groups:

  1. A network of institutes and individuals to exchange information, discuss research in progress and publish completed research.
  2. A group jointly pursuing research on a specific topic, with the intention of reporting the findings in a publication at the end of its work.
  3. A group providing joint input or service to development research or training, e.g., the Information Management and Training Working Groups.

The EADI Mentoring Programme “Develop Your Talents” provides young scholars with the chance to exchange with someone further advanced in their career. The mentoring does not offer professional coaching to the mentees, but accompaniment on a younger sister/elder sister level. 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?

Seeing urban politics from the perspective of those who reside in slums offers an important dimension to the study of urbanism in the global South. Many people living in sub-standard conditions do not have their rights as urban citizens recognised and realise that they cannot rely on formal democratic channels or governance structures. Through in-depth case studies and comparative research, The Politics of Slums in the Global South: Urban Informality in Brazil, India, South Africa and Peru integrates conceptual discussions on urban political dynamics with empirical material from research undertaken in Rio de Janeiro, Delhi, Chennai, Cape Town, Durban and Lima.
