*  *  *

Published on Monday, March 21, 2022


The Institute of Development Studies of the Sorbonne (IEDES), University Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne and the European Association of Development Studies and Training Institutes (EADI) are organising an international study day on cross-readings on and from the South in development studies. Three round tables will be organised (in English and French). The first will question the notion of the “traveller model” proposed by Jean-Pierre Olivier de Sardan, the second will explore the local modalities of crisis governance in the Sahel, and the third will give the floor to doctoral students enrolled in development studies on the subject of the contributions, limits and realities of the multidisciplinarity claimed by development studies.



This event is organised by the Institut d'études du développement de la Sorbonne (IEDES) through the schedule of the organisation of the European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes (EADI) Executive Committee in Paris, in hybrid mode, on Thursday, March 31st 2022, with presentations and discussions in English.
