Call for Papers (see right hand side for download)
Existing development pathways need to be transformed so that they are more environmentally sustainable and socially inclusive. These two agendas can be synergistic or conflicting. Synergies have been explored to some extent in recent concepts such as the ‘green economy’, while the associated trade-offs and conflicts have received less attention.

With the workshop ‚Green and social: managing synergies and trade-offs‘, the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) and the Poverty Reduction, Equity and Growth Network (PEGNet) aim to address the gap between environmental and social perspectives on development by bringing together research and practice, but also the environmental and the social inclusion communities.

The workshop will be split into two phases: The first two days will provide room to discuss the workshop themes in panel sessions, working groups and during keynote presentations. The third day aims to translate the findings into practice and offers researchers and practitioners the opportunity to engage in a dialogue on the practical implications of the earlier discussed issues.
Because of the multidimensional nature of the topics, we invite submissions from across disciplines such as economics, political science, sociology, and geography. We are particularly interested in interdisciplinary approaches.

Important dates:
Abstract submission: 30 September 2013
