19th Development Dialogue - Reckoning with the past and imagining the futures of development research and practice

Annual PhD Conference


Erasmus University Rotterdam

Meeting place

Hybrid Conference

The field of development studies is not estranged from critiques of extractive and hegemonizing policies and practices – the power relations that reproduce structural inequalities around the world. In the age of environmental crises, unprecedented migration and displacement, and questions around justice and equity, we believe that development research and praxis are undergoing a moment of reckoning as scholars and practitioners grapple with the limitations and shortcomings of dominant approaches to development.
