Conferences and seminars

ISS organizes and hosts a number of conferences, seminars and public debates throughout the year.

Some of these are recurring, such as the annual Development Dialogue conference, whilst others are one-offs. All these conferences, seminars and public debates are advertised on the ISS website and often include a call for papers.

Development Research Seminars

Cutting-edge research on development studies by noted scholars from around the world.


Research in Progress Seminars

These seminars provide an informal venue for presentations of ongoing research by ISS scholars  and other scholars from the wider development studies community.


Development Dialogue

A yearly initiative by ISS' PhD candidates to exchange the results of recent and ongoing research by young scholars and doctoral candidates in different fields of development studies.
