28 June – 2 July 2021: Online Conference at UEA
COVID19, climate change, populism, demands for racial justice and the rise of new powers are among the themes that will be explored.
The call for funding is now CLOSED.
Through generous awards from the Journal of Development Studies, the Journal of International Development and the DSA, the DSA2021 conference organisers are able to allocate support funds to help with accepted authors’ and convenors’ attendance to the online DSA conference hosted and organised by the University of East Anglia, 28 June-2 July 2021.
The rules and criteria are straightforward:
Prioritisation of this support will, in order, be for those who are both from the global South and based at institutions in the global South, early career academics, students and those with exceptional circumstances.
Funding is not guaranteed in advance as we expect demand to be greater than the availability of support.
We will endeavour to make and communicate decisions to all applicants by 19 April 2021.
Conditions of funding
All successful applicants will receive either a full or partial fee waiver for their conference registration fee. If a funded delegate is unable to attend the conference, they must notify us as soon as they can so that we can offer their funding to another candidate. These are the conditions accepted in applying for the funds.
