DSA2020: New Leadership for Global Challenges
University of Birmingham, 17-19 June 2020
The DSA's annual conference in 2020 will take place at the University of Birmingham from 17-19 June. The conference will focus centrally on "New Leadership for Global Challenges", while also encompassing the broad range of development studies interests. Our aim is to investigate where and how leadership is emerging at global, regional and local levels to address critical issues such as climate emergency, identity-based inequalities, poverty, violence, ill-health, resource plunder, and digital surveillance.
The Call for Panels is now open and will close on 11 November. All proposals must be made online via the submission form, but please first familiarise yourself with the theme of the conference and all the rules and guidelines on the Call for Panels page.
Panels will be chosen by the DSA2020 Scientific Committee that comprises members of the Local Committee and the DSA Council. The scholars on the committee represent a wide range of different development studies fields and approaches.
