Come to Bergen in August 2017!

Are you keen to challenge globalisation, to tackle inequalities, to query (planetary) boundaries, to join the flow of ideas?
Participate in the EADI NORDIC Conference 2017!

The conference is a joint partnership between EADI (European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes), NFU (Norwegian Association of Development Research) and the University of Bergen (UiB).

The EADI NORDIC 2017 provides a public forum for academic exchange, reflection and debate on pressing global and developmental questions. We invite scholars, policymakers and practitioners  to engage in new approaches to understand global challenges and reflect on paths forward.

Target Groups

The conference targets scholars, students, practitioners and policy-makers within the broad field of development research:

  • Researchers and students
  • Members of development agencies
  • Representatives of governmental, non-governmental agencies
  • Representatives of civil society organisations

Conference Format

The format will be interactive, with panel and working group sessions. Presentations and papers will be available online and in the conference documentation.

The EADI Dudley Seers Lecture will be held on Sunday evening (20 August) before the official opening of the conference (tba).


Unfortunately we are not in a position to reimburse travel costs, unless you are applying for one of our limited number of bursaries with specific criteria for eligibility. One criterion is that the paper of the applicant is accepted by the conference committee. Information on procedure will be published in early 2017.
