Development in crisis?
How can development studies respond to the increasingly frequent, interconnected and mutually reinforcing contemporary crises we face?
Will development studies be able to prove that is truly inter- and trans-disciplinary and contribute to the understanding of policy and governance challenges in the Global South in the face of multiple crises? Will development studies identify the right levers for policy action to positively impact for the most marginalised?
The DSA jointly organised a panel with the European Association of Development Studies at King’s College London to discuss these questions from the perspectives of disaster risk research, peace and conflict research and the multiple development challenges faced by a single country on the example of South Africa.
