Editorial

Today we are happy to announce that our Annual Report for 2018 is out, and it is encouraging for us to see how many diverse and interesting activities we had last year, all in the spirit of highlighting the importance of Development Studies and instigating discussions on the various challenges it needs to address. Looking forward, the preparations of the next Directors' Meeting in Cordoba are taking up pace and we are looking for a new colleague to support us with a new project on which we will keep you informed in due course. Not to forget the news picks, publications, calls and vacancies from our member community. Enjoy the read!
EADI Directors' Meeting 2019: Programme available
This year's Directors' Meeting will be held in Cordoba, Spain, at Loyola Andalucía University from 17 to 18 October 2019. The event is kindly hosted by a consortium of EADI members in Spain: REEDES, Instituto Elcano, ICEI and ETEA Foundation. The topical focus will be the 2030 Agenda, with emphasis on the Latin American perspective and with an overarching focus on the practical application of public policies. With 50 to 80 expected participants, the meeting is a good opportunity for member institutes to build connections and identify opportunities for cooperation. Have a look at the preliminary programme.
From our Blog
"I am convinced that one cannot meaningfully speak about “development” without seriously considering critique and arguments brought forward by decolonial scholarship".  In our latest blog post our former colleague Julia Schöneberg  explains Why a decolonial lens must be at the heart of all those who claim to research and teach “development”. This post is part of the series on our book "Building Development Studies for the new Millennium", and Julia's  chapter on imagining postcolonial Development Studies has been the most downloaded chapter of the book so far!

Highlight: Public Finance for the Future We Want
This open access book by the Transnational Institute draws on real-world examples to demonstrate that a political economy that curbs the power of big finance and serves people and planet is possible. The ideas shared here are timely and urgent—a call to readiness before the next financial bubble bursts.  This book presents visions of regenerative and redistributive economies, built with collective power: from the thriving cooperative economy in Kerala, India, to the hundreds of local saving banks in Germany, the worker-owned bank Banco Popular in Costa Rica, and the thousands of People’s Credit Funds in Vietnam. It explores models that could become the new normal— the basis for a democratically organised and life-sustaining future. Read more
