Editorial

Our heartfelt congratulations to our premium member Institute of Development Studies (IDS) at the University of Sussex, who has been ranked first in the global QS University Rankings in the category of Development Studies. We are proud that another EADI member, the Oxford Department of International Development (ODID), has been ranked second, and congratulate the Global Development Institute (GDI) who has also made it to the top 10. Apart from that, the upcoming EADI/ISS General Conference is taking shape, and we are happy to announce that Rohini Pande, Professor of Economics at Yale University, will give the prestigious Dudley Seers Lecture right before the official opening of the conference. As usual, more news from us and our member community are further below.
New on our Blog: Re-Politizing the European Aid Debate
Referring to their recent book "Aid Power and Politics", Iliana Olivié and Aitor Pérez from the Elcano Royal Institute analyse  how the crises in Europe have changed countries' aid policies: "Currently, a new divide between Nationalism and Liberalism-Cosmopolitanism is emerging in the academic debate on aid. To counter the ‘cultural backlash’ of either lobbying against aid, or for using aid to shut ‘the other’ out in many European countries and sectors, some academics and activists point out the need for aid as tool for the promotion of democracy, civil and human rights and a liberal ideal of world society. In this sense, aid can be used selfishly, but for the promotion of one’s values, not interests" Read the post
