NorDev 2023 is held in Uppsala 21-23 August, and is organised by Uppsala University and the Swedish Development Research Network (SweDev). The general purpose of the conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners from the Nordic countries and beyond to debate and rethink contemporary issues in development research and policy.

This year’s conference theme is Co-creation for a just transition towards a sustainable society. Despite achievements in global development, authoritarian regimes as well as environmental degradation and inequality are on the rise, and we face continuous, and often interrelated, political, environmental and social challenges. We see the need for new global development approaches and processes. In addition, many of the sustainability and developmental challenges are complex and require co-creation and coordination of different actors and disciplines in order to deepen the understanding of those challenges and the possible actions to counter them.
