We are happy to announce that School of Global Studies and Centre on Global Migration are hosting the Development Research Conference on 22-23 August 2018. The theme of DevRes 2018 is ‘Rethinking Development’.

The idea, study, and policy field of ‘development’ emerged in the 1940s, in a time of decolonization, the Cold War, and Euro-centric high modernism. Seventy years later the scene is one of new emerging economies, migration crises, multiculturalism, climate change, and new patterns of infectious and chronic diseases. Given such profound transformations, do we need, again, to rethink ‘development’? Do we need to rethink the migration-development nexus in global development research and policymaking?

The call for panels is now released! Deadline to submit a panel proposal is December 3.

We encourage you all to circulate the call in your networks. You will find more information at the DEVRES 18 conference website.
