DSAI Annual Conference

Held in October or November each year over two days, the DSAI Annual Conference is a key event in the calendar for researchers, policy makers and practitioners across the sector. Each year, our Steering Committee picks a Conference Theme of current relevance to the international development community in Ireland and secures high calibre keynote speakers and panel discussions to explore the theme. Through an open call for papers, our study groups also facilitate further breakout sessions on their themes. It is also a time for our members to connect with us through our AGM. Each year at our conference we announce the winner of that year’s Robert Chambers Award and Best Student Paper Competition.

In 2020, in light of COVID-19, our conference will be going online, running on Wednesday 29th October 2020.

This year's Conference theme is 'Humanitarianism in Action'. 

More about this year's theme, programme, speakers and registration available here: Annual Conference 2020
