16th EADI General Conference 2020: Solidarity, Peace, and Social Justice - European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes
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 do not increase inequality, poverty, political marginalization and/or climate change. 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. We would like to invite conference participants to reflect on any aspect of solidarity, peace, and social justice in their panels and papers. How can we give new meanings to solidarity in a period of growing distrust between and within nations and amongst people? How can we, as development scholars and practitioners, contribute to peace and social justice in our work? And how can we find new understandings and/or explanations to the concept of ‘development’, without simply adding new adjectives?
