Doing Development Research Differently during and beyond Covid-19

We will be using Zoom videoconferencing for this event and you will receive a link to the Zoom meeting the day before the event on February 15th.


The global pandemic has created many challenges for researchers in the field of international development, not least the restrictions on travel and movement. However, has Covid-19 actually triggered welcome changes? Has the pandemic , for instance, led to changes that address inequitable power relations between researchers in the Global North and South and speak to a decolonising agenda? How can any positive changes be sustained? In a roundtable format, a panel of speakers will outline their experiences and address these questions.
