NorDev Conference 2021: Call for working groups

The 6th joint Nordic Development Research Conference takes place on June 21-22, 2021 at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland. 

The conference will focus on development, learning, and education post the pandemic. 

The 6th joint Nordic Development Research conference welcomes development researchers to reflect on questions related to development, learning and education from multiple, multidisciplinary and critical perspectives. The plenary sessions focus on the conference theme. However, the working groups coordinated by scholars can cover a wide variety of topics relevant to current Nordic development research in order to support mutual learning and sharing within our own research community.


Deadline for working groups is October 30th.

Webinar om fremtidens udviklingsforskning


Torsdag den 25. juni 2020 afholdt FAU i samarbejde med DIIS et webinar om fremtidens udviklingsforskning i anledning af den nyligt publicerede evalueringsrapport fra Udenrigsministeriet.
Webinaret bød på flere spændende diskussioner og input; blandt andet denne brainstorm om, hvad udvikling egentlig er.


Aktuel debat: hvad skal vi egentlig med udviklingsforskningen? 

I forbindelse med den igangværende evaluering af Udenrigsministeriets støtte til udviklingsforskning bliver der sat spørgsmålstegn ved, hvad vi i bund og grund skal med forskning i udvikling i fremtiden.

Lars Engberg-Pedersen og Rasmus Hundsbæk, som begge er seniorforskere på Dansk Institut for Internationale Studier (DIIS), mener, at det er tid til at gentænke, hvad udviklingsforskning egentlig er.

Du kan læse mere om seniorforskernes perspektiv på nedenstående link eller deltage i debatten på FAUs Facebookside lige her: www.facebook.com/faudanmark
