2nd Issue August 2019

Editorial

At the moment everything is quiet, and we hope that many of you are enjoying the holiday season. Please don't miss, however, to submit a session or panel for our 2020 General Conference in case you intend to do so. The call is only open until 6 September! And we'd like to draw your attention to another open call: our journal, the EJDR is preparing a special issue on artificial intelligence in international development and looks forward to interesting paper submissions. For more calls, vacancies, publications and news from our member community, please the usual scroll!
This special issue call welcomes proposals of a coherent set of empirical, conceptual, and/or theoretical papers that explore these and/or other facets of artificial intelligence and related technologies in international development. While a single disciplinary focus across papers is acceptable, we strongly encourage proposals that include studies with a diversity of academic approaches such as from economics, political economy, political science, sociology, and other fields.

The EJDR launches impact evaluation section
Here are some more news from the EJDR: the journal is launching a new section dedicated to the publication of original research on impact assessment. This section aims to enhance the visibility of the original research on the impacts of development policies and programs that the EJDR publishes. Furthermore, it will provide a forum for the publication of evidence-based analyses and critiques of the implications of impact assessment for development policy and practice. Read more

New on our blog
In our latest blog post Diego da Silva Rodrigues discusses the challenges for applying monitoring and evaluation (M&E) to small organisations and makes the case for empowering them for M&E: "Governments and international organisations have their reasons to focus their M&E efforts on large social programs. Indeed, to spend resources and effort on the M&E of small NGOs would be laborious and probably not lead to significant returns – both economically and academically. Yet, the small NGOs cannot just be set aside: when taken together, their activities are socially huge and important." Read more
Highlight: Poverty as Ideology - now open access!
Poverty as Ideology shows how our dominant approaches to poverty studies have served to reinforce the prevailing neoliberal ideology while neglecting the wider interests of social justice that are fundamental to creating more equitable societies. Instead, our development policies have created a ‘poverty industry’ that obscures the dynamic reproductions of poverty within contemporary capitalist development and promotes segregation in the name of science and charity. Andrew Fisher, associate professor at the Institute of Social Studies (ISS), argues that an effective and lasting solution to global poverty requires us to reorient our efforts away from current fixations on productivity and towards more equitable distributions of wealth and resources. The book is winner of the International Studies in Poverty Prize awarded by the Comparative Research Programme on Poverty CROP, today's featured EADI member, and Zed Books. Read more
Featured EADI Member: CROP

The Comparative Research Programme on Poverty (CROP) is a programme of the International Science Council (ISC), hosted by the University of Bergen, Norway. It aims to build independent, critical knowledge and education which can inform policy. CROP has a long-standing record of co-ordinating and facilitating publications on poverty. The programme places a special effort in highlighting and giving visibility to resources and publications from the Global South and from young researchers. It regularly publishes the CROP poverty briefs which comprise short research notes highlighting recent research and trends in global poverty. Read more
