Online Seminar: EU Development Policy Post 2020: norms and contestation

16 June, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The EU’s development policy is being strategically adjusting to respond to the shifting challenges of the international order. In doing so it is argued that this is undermining the EU’s core normative commitment to development.

Jointly organized by the International Institute of Social Studies and the European Association of Development Research and Training Institute (EADI), this seminar approaches the topic by exploring the extent to which the shift to ‘partnership’ in EU development rhetoric is a break with the past?

The aim of the seminar is to provide an arena for ECR/PhD students to receive feedback on their work. The cancellation (for obvious reasons) of various conferences has deprived them of this important feedback element. We invite colleagues to join and participate in the spirit of providing constructive and supportive feedback.
