Editorial

This month we've got two events to look forward to: next week's Directors' Meeting of our member institutes, which is always a great opportunity to share ideas, identifying common problems, assess the progress of ongoing initiatives and find partners for new projects! This year it takes place in Cordoba, Spain, and if you're around on 17 October, we cordially invite you to the public conference "Inequality in Latin America: Markets and Politics". And we are excited that the 19th conference of the Global Development Network (GDN)  takes place here in Bonn in partnership with three of our members. And of course we've got the usual bunch of news, publications, calls and vacancies from our community.
What are the predominant ways of cooperation between research and practice? What are the ingredients for successful partnerships? How can we frame cooperation with local stakeholders to have a long-lasting impact? How does co-production of knowledge influence the validity of research results? In our panel and workshop at the upcoming Global Development Conference in Bonn we will explore examples from existing research to practise partnership projects, combining academic and non-academic perspectives from the policy and NGO sector.

New on our Blog: ‘Justice’ not ‘aid’ for the South
"The structural underdevelopment of the South is not only rooted in a history of colonialism, racism and imperialism, but also in contemporary production chains, economic power relations and illegal financial flows. There is no such thing as economies at different speeds." In our latest blog post, researchers from the  department of conflict and development studies at Ghent University make the case for developing "new  guidelines for EU policies toward the Global South" which are "rooted in justice and solidarity". Remember: one of the intentions of our blog is to trigger fruitful discussions, so please feel free to comment! Read more
