Announcement for Global South Members
There were deliberations during the DSA 2019 conference for the need to have global South members of DSA who are also residents in global South as members of DSA Council. The reason for this is to give adequate representation to members in the global South at the DSA Council.
In this regard, the Council acknowledged the importance of having representation of global South members on Council, therefore it was agreed by the Council to have two representatives of global South members in the Council. These persons will be chosen through an online election which will be held amongst global South members.
It is therefore being announced for the information of members from global South who have the interest, passion to serve and time to sacrifice to look out for the call for nominations on the DSA website and present themselves for the election. We also encourage all global South members to participate in the online election when the time is due.

An expanded version of Robtel Pailey’s 2019 Development Studies Association conference keynote was recently published in the journal Development and Change. In the spirit of 'opening up development', it is open access for the next six months.
The Development Studies Association edits a book series on Critical Frontiers of Theory, Research and Practice in International Development Studies, which is published by Oxford University Press. The series profiles research monographs that will shape the theory, practice, and teaching of international development for a new generation of scholars, students, and practitioners. We are seeking exciting proposals for new titles in the series. Recent titles in the series include Playing with Fire: Deepened Financial Integration and Changing Vulnerabilities of the Global South by Yilmaz Akyüz and Taken for a Ride: Grounding Neoliberalism, Precarious Labour, and Public Transport in an African Metropolis by Matteo Rizzo. The series editors can be contacted for further information about the series or for discussing prospective book proposals through the email address: dsabookseries(at)devstud.org.uk
