The Development Research Conference takes on the themes of what kind of ‘development’ that is wanted for today’s world. 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 increased competition for land and other natural resources. Given such profound transformations, do we need, again, to rethink ‘development’?

The conference is built up by many interesting panels on themes such as multifunctional landscapes, development and land in the context of the Paris agreement, new frontiers in land and resource tenure research, sustainable migration and development and gender and much more.

Registration to the conference is open between April 13th and June 30th 2018, and accessed through the event homepage.
