EADI conference virtual visits

Dutch organizations working on solidarity, peace and social justice

A unique activity during the online EADI-ISS conference are the virtual visits of conference participants to a range of professional organizations in The Netherlands working on national and international solidarity, peace and social justice. Many of these organizations already have close relationships with the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS), either via staff members, ISS alumni or institutionally.

The purpose of these visits is twofold:

  • to allow conference participants to link up with non-academic professional groups and organizations in the Netherlands (working on solidarity, peace and/or social justice issues) and to discuss their activities, linked to the conference theme.
  • to allow the Netherlands-based organizations to present themselves to a global network of development specialists, to engage in a lively discussion and to establish new professional relationships.

Book your visit

Two slots of one hour each are dedicated to the virtual visits during the conference, one on Wednesday 7 July at 15:30-16:30 and the second on Thursday 8 July 9:30-10:30.

Several organizations will use both time slots, with the same programme, offering the opportunity for more participants to visit two organizations. Details of these visits will be announced on Conftool (the conference programme interface), so take a look in advance at the conference programme.

There is no need to preregister.
