Title & Content:

Agency in a changing world of development


This panel presents theoretical and empirical explorations of how we should understand the role of institutions in governing development today. It draws on current research at the Danish Institute of International Studies (DIIS), where a number of projects address institutions and institutional change from  different angles and at different levels of scale. The set of papers to be presented in the panel will be drawn from ongoing DIIS work on climate change, climate mobility, the SDGs, private investors in agrarian production, local governance, and renewable energy.
