Call for abstracts for the EADI / ISS 2020 conference. Deadline Extended

Issued on


The EADI have announced an open call for abstracts for the EADI / ISS 2020 conference on “Solidarity, Peace and Social Justice” which will take place from 29 June to 2 July 2020 in The Hague, The Netherlands. 

Please note that the EADI 2020 Conference : Solidarity, Peace and Social Justice Call for papers deadline extended until January 6th 2020.

The European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes (EADI) and the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) announce the 16th EADI General Conference, to be held in The Hague (Netherlands) from Monday 29 June to Thursday 2 July 2020. The conference will be hosted by 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. It 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.

EADI is happy to announce the open call for abstracts for seed and harvest panels at the 16th EADI General Conference from 29 June to 2 July 2020. Below, you can click on each panel to find the panel abstract. Furthermore, the workshop and roundtable sessions (invited speakers only) can now also be viewed.

There are two panel formats:

  • Seed panel (SP): Provides a platform to present work in progress and/or innovative ideas and do not necessarily require the submission of a full paper.
  • Harvest panel (HP): Provides a space to present completed research and research findings.

The abstract should not be longer than 600 words.

Submitting your abstract to a panel can be done here.

In spring 2020 we will announce specific dates, times and locations of these panels and sessions.
