SID International Conference: Reconciling the Dichotomies of Development

The Society for International Development has recently celebrated its 50th anniversary with an international congress in the Hague (4-7 July).

Taking place exactly half way to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the Congress looked at how to put into practice a human development that recognizes and respects diversities while sustaining social, gender and economic justice.

In particular, the pre-conference event focussing on 'Europe and Development', saw Fran├žoise Moreau, Stefan van Wersch, Paul Engel and Alex Wilks discussing and debate the role and responsibilities of Europe in a multilateral world.
