Editorial

Today we are happy to invite the academic coordinators of the various Development Studies programmes from our member institutes to a get-together in Bonn next September.  This is the first event of its kind and we hope that it will offer good opportunities for everyone to exchange experiences, learn from each other and refresh connections. This also fits well with the topic of our latest blog post which sheds the light on Development Studies from a student's perspective. And, despite the summer slump we've got some interesting new picks and publications for you.
In our workshop on Thursday, 26 and Friday 27 September we will be focusing on designing, structuring and running teaching programmes in the field of Development Studies.  Apart from keynotes by coordinators of renowned academic programmes and much room for interactive exchange, we will present the state-of-the-art quality assurance and accreditation system EADI has especially developed for the field of Development Studies. Registrations for the workshop will be on a "first come, first serve" basis. Read more
From our Blog
Why should an association of institutes who offer various types of Development Studies programmes publish a blog post summing up the frustrations that might come along with these programmes? Well, first of all  "5 Things that will Frustrate the Heck out of you when studying International Development" is good feedback for everyone working in this field. Then, Stella Yoh's article is anything than pessimistic:
"Because despite everything, you love it anyway. Because this world, as imperfect it is, needs more people like you and I, who genuinely care about the problems and the solutions we come up with, however imperfect." Read more
