Academics from the Global Development Institute are helping to convene a number of panels at the annual Development Studies Association conference taking place 6-8 July 2022. This year’s conference adopts justice and equity as central normative lenses to explore just futures in an urbanising and mobile world, facing a climate and ecological crisis in a pandemic or post-pandemic context.

There is a call for papers for all panels at the DSA Conference; visit the DSA website for more information. The deadline for submitting papers is 11 March (extended deadline).
