Issues and challenges for development and development research

On 27 June, immediately before the Euforic annual meeting, EADI, Euforic, IDS, ISS, and SID Netherlands held a roundtable discussion as part of the activities celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Institute of Development Studies.

Meeting in an informal 'thinktank' mode, participants explored emerging development issues that are likely to shape the development research agenda, ways that development research is ‘reinventing’ itself (or being reinvented), and the architecture and agenda of European development research.

The brief meeting report can be downloaded from the AGM dossier on the Euforic web site. More information on the IDS roundtables is available on its web site.
