null Call for abstracts: International Development Ethics Association Conference

A World United: Allies in Ethical Development

Bordeaux, France June 25 – 27, 2018
International Development Ethics Association and Groupe de Recherche en Économie Théorique et Appliquée GRETHA UMR CNRS 5113 University of Bordeaux
Unité Mixte Internationale Résilience (IRD), and with support from FREE (Fonds pour la recherche en éthique économique)
Conference Theme
The conference theme "A World United: Allies in Development" was chosen with the hope of inspiring thoughtful conversations about the important relationships that can both frustrate and facilitate development. Although we are primarily concerned with questions of personal relationships in which individuals and groups of people ally themselves with one another to bring about ethical development, this theme is also meant to capture alliances at every level of development, including alliances between and across nation states, corporations, multinational groups, NGOs, etc.
A World United, the eleventh congress of the International Development Ethics Association, will be held conjointly with the seventh conference on development, Collective Action and Development, of GREThA (Groupe de Recherche en Économie Théorique et Appliquée). All participants are welcome to attend both conference sessions. The two conferences will take place in the same venue (Pole Juridique et Judiciaire, downtown historical Bordeaux).
