Event summary: International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) invites you to register to this year's EADI General Conference.

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

This virtual edition of the conference is hosted by 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 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 EADI’s aspirations for approaches to global development that address inequality, poverty and political marginalisation, 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.
