EADI ISS Conference 2021 "Solidarity, Peace and Social Justice"
The European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes (EADI) and the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) announce that the 16th EADI General Conference, to be held from Monday 5 July to Thursday 8 July 2021, will take place entirely online. We will make sure that the conference also in its virtual format will become a very special event. It will benefit from the virtual hospitality of 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. The conference will be combined with the Development Dialogue, the annual European conference of PhD candidates working in development studies.
The central theme of the conference is “Solidarity, Peace and Social Justice”. Together, these three concepts represent our 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.
