EADI (European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes) celebrates its 50 years anniversary next year in 2024 and would like this to be celebrated at different places. The events can be in person, online or hybrid.
EADI is an association that aims to connect researchers from different countries with a common goal to “promote a concerted approach to the gaps and shortcomings in research on development problems as practised in the rich countries” (The EADI Story, 1999, page 71).
This is a great opportunity to contribute with their efforts and promote different events with a focus on development.
NFU is also interested in co-organizing events and would be happy to work together on seminars or other activities. If you wish to collaborate with us, please send us an email on: email@example.com.
NUPI invites to a breakfast seminar to be held on February 9th at 9:00 about Norwegian aid policies and trends in the Nordics.
The event is being organized in cooperation with the release of a special publication of the journal Forum For Development Studies, which focuses on trends, similarities and differents in Nordic development aid.
There will be speakers from different organizations, such as ReddBarna, NUPI, Norad, CMI, Foreign Affairs Department and Expert Group for Aid Studies, which will provide the perspective from academia, government and NGOs in this important issue.
One of the key themes of the seminar will be the reduced aid from Norway and the use of aid resources being redirected to Ukraine and ukrainians refugees.
The seminar is a hybrid event, registration is required for those attending physically, but not to watch it online. The seminar will be held in Norwegian.
