Editorial

Currently we are busy preparing the upcoming meeting of our Executive Committee next week at the Faculty of Social Sciences in Ljubljana.If you happen to be around on 4 April, you are cordially invited to our public workshop "EU development policy at a crossroad, without a compass?", the launch event of our new working group "The European Union as a Development Actor". Besides this, we keep adding blog posts and webinars to our #DevStudies4Millennium series, as well as collecting the usual bunch of publications, calls and vacancies. And: as we only include open access member publications here, and also in view of the ongoing heated discussions on paywalls in academic publishing, we'd like to recommend this article: The future of scholarly publishing: Paywalls and profits or a new plan.
International Development Assistance: New EADI Book
Shortly after the launch of "Building Development Studies for the New Millennium" we are proud and happy to present the next book in our Global Development series: International Development Assistance - Policy Drivers and Performance provides a comprehensive search for the basic political drivers of international development cooperation. Through extensive research, the work examines predominant world-views, societal value systems and foreign policy traditions, in order to find the policy drivers that vary nation to nation and how development assistance has evolved globally.

From our Blog
In our latest blogpost, Christine Lutringer from the Graduate Institute in Geneva explains how Francophone scholarship has deepened our understanding of democracy and social change, an eye-opener for anyone who is not too familiar with this tradition of research: "Considering the effects of globalisation and the multipolarity of the world, Francophone political scientists and sociologists are remarkable for their observation of economic, political, social change from below (...). Francophone scholars have largely contributed to “post-development” and “de-growth” theories. And today the French-speaking development community is raising concerns about the need to rethink the relationship between society and the environment. Read more
 
News from EADI Working Groups
"I often hear of fascinating long-term research in global South communities, yet I hear few conversations around strategies to make research also beneficial to the people in the field communities". In the latest blog of our “Post- and Decolonial Perspectives on Development” Working Group, Christopher Millora shares his thoughts on Reciprocity as Research Ethics. Read more

Highlight: Child Poverty, Disasters and Climate Change
This study by the Overseas Development Institute examines the relationship between natural hazard-related disasters and child and adolescent poverty in India and Kenya. It explores these connections through a lifecycle approach focusing on the incidence of child poverty and longer-term poverty dynamics and wellbeing. The analysis combines a range of different datasets around household and child poverty, disasters and local climatology, brought together for the first time.

Climate change and natural hazards can reverse years of development gains, and can affect children and adolescents in different ways, both directly – through injury or the impact on household poverty or individual deprivation – and indirectly, through the effects on services and systems central to their wellbeing and longer-term development.
