03.05.2012 | ZEF: Public Lecture "The future of development theory"

What are the transformations in the global society shaping the development of development theory? Which challenges arising from development policy does the discipline have to deal with? And what are the theoretical innovations influencing research in this field? Has development theory recovered from its crisis or is it on the decline?

This Public Lecture is part of a workshop on development theory (“Entwicklungstheorien: Weltgesellschaftliche Transformationen, entwicklungspolitische Herausforderungen, theoretische Innovationen”) which will take place at ZEF and is sponsored by the Thyssen foundation.

The panelists are:
Reinhart Kößler, Associate Professor for sociology at the Arnold-Bergstraesser-Institute Freiburg
Claudia Derichs, Professor for comparative political science/International Development Studies at the University of Marburg
Elena Sondermann, Research assistant at the Institute of Development and Peace Duisburg

The discussion will be facilitated by Aram Ziai (Senior Researcher ZEF)
