The European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes (EADI) and the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) EADI General Conference will take place entirely online.

Even in this virtual format, the conference will be a very special event. It will benefit from the virtual hospitality of ISS, one of Europe’s oldest and largest centres for research and education in the field of development studies.

The conference will be combined with the 17th Development Dialogue, the annual European conference of PhD candidates working in development studies.

About the conference

The central theme of the conference is 'Solidarity, Peace and Social Justice'. Together, these three concepts represent the organization's aspirations for approaches to global development that address inequality, poverty and political marginalization, also in connection with climate change and other environmental threats. 

Solidarity is essential for any process of social change. Based on mutually shared interests and human values, solidarity can be extremely powerful yet can also be easily undermined in an era of fake news and (electronically) manipulated elections. 

Peace and social justice are similarly important values in (as well as aspired outcomes of) struggles or transformation processes in which solidarity is key.

The conference will be hosted by the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS), one of Europe’s oldest and largest centres for research and education in the field of development studies. It will be combined with the Development Dialogue, the annual European conference of PhD candidates working in development studies.
