2019 – Opening up development
Open University, Milton Keynes
The conference theme, ‘Opening up Development’, aimed to draw attention to shifts in the global political economy; new forms of development intervention and activism; and the call to ‘de-colonise’ the teaching and learning of development studies. Delegates were urged to rethink the challenges of maintaining open and critical societies and inclusive economies. Meeting these challenges requires new and innovative thinking, involving non-traditional academic voices. It also means developing innovative forms of knowledge production and exchange between development research, development practice, political activism, and the arts.
