Is the global development agenda changing and, if so, what does this imply for development researchers? The following remarks first discuss our quest for global justice and relate this objective to the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Considering aid as a principal tool to promote global justice, I conclude with a few comments about changes in the contemporary aid landscape and their implications for aid research.
