3rd Issue August 2019


Today we look forward to our panel at the upcoming conference of the Poverty Reduction, Equity and Growth Network (PEGNet) "Promoting social, economic and socio-political development through social protection". At the same time, the preparations for our workshop for coordinators of Development Studies Programmes are well under way. If you work in this field and would like to participate, please don't hesitate to contact us! On another note we would like to remind you that there's only a week left to submit a panel or session for our 2020 General Conference "Solidarity, Peace and Social Justice". And, as usual, you will find the publications picks, calls and vacancies from our member community further below.
If you can make it to Bonn on 9 and 10 September, we cordially invite you to our panel at this year's PEGNet conference, which is jointly organised by the German Development Institute (DIE) and the Centre for Development Research (ZEF): Fragmentation across social protection policies is a problem often observed in many low and middle income countries, diminishing the potential effects of social protection on inclusive development. Based on paper presentations, the panel discussion aims at creating an interactive platform for debating latest advances made in exploring the interaction effects between different social protection policy areas from a political economy perspective.

New on our blog
In the second blog post of the "Solidarity, Peace and Social Justice" series in the run-up to our 2020 General Conference, Kees Biekart from the International Institute for Social Studies (ISS) gives some good reasons why solidarity is essential for Development Studies: "Development studies often remains a Northern-dominated field of studies in which solidarity often is disregarded as a concept revealing activist agendas, rather than a key agenda for fundamental change. After all, isn’t that what we aspire when focusing on ‘development’?" Read more
General Conference: Call for Panels closes soon!
If you consider submitting a panel to our next General Conference, please do so in the course of the coming week, as the submission deadline is 6 September and time is running! We seek to provide spaces for discussion, engagement, sharing, and co-creation among conveners, contributors and participants. For that reason, the conference gives room for a variety of different formats. We explicitly welcome innovative formats, artistic expressions and non-academic contributors. These include special panels between practitioners and academics as well as a high number of participants from the Global South. Read the call

News from EADI Working Groups
Our Working Group on Post- and Decolonial Perspectives on Development, the Convivial Thinkers, have an interesting discussion around the term "development": Su-ming Khoo argues that abandoning it altogether - as suggested previously - won't help as long as the problem of inequality is not addressed.

Some of the group members will meet at the "Decolonial Alternatives to Development" conference in Kassel, Germany, on 10 and 11 September, for which registration is still open! Read more
Highlight: Migration and Development
What is known and not known about the links between migration and economic development? What is the potential of development assistance in enhancing these links? This publication by The Migration Studies Delegation (Delmi) and The Expert Group for Aid Studies (EBA), today's featured EADI member, synthesizes existing research on the links between migration and economic development. It also discusses how the role of migration in development can be considered in the design of development assistance. The evidence is mixed on whether development assistance increase growth, and on whether growth increase or decrease emigration pressures. Both the composition of aid and characteristics of the recipient country influence the effects of development assistance on migration and economic development. Read more
