IKD seminar series: Quo Vadis Development Studies? Changing dynamics in a contested field

16 November, 2023 - 12:30 to 14:00

Online via Microsoft Teams


The field of Development Studies has always been contested by different visions ranging from those that conceive it as project of the global North developing the South to those that view it as a project of Southern emancipation from colonial subordination and a means to structural transformation. The COVID-19 pandemic once again motivated calls for the field of development studies to be recast.

Drawing from recent publications below, the seminar explores the role of critical development policies, and emergent theoretical paradigms.
