Global challenges for development research: lessons from North-South collaborations

Convener: Kevin Noone, Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry (ACES), Stockholm University

The UN Sustainable Development Goals provide an ambitious and inspiring challenge to the world. The aim is nothing less than to create just, dignified, prosperous and sustainable wellbeing for all. Achieving these goals will require an unprecedented level of effort and collaboration which needs to be carried out in an evidence-based fashion, and be attentive to the inherently political nature of these goals. To address development concerns such as natural resource management, poverty, global environmental change, forced migration and conflict, global production networks and labour requires a truly trans-disciplinary approach.

This session will explore the potential for North-South research collaboration to address these challenges. It will be organized around presentations on the following themes:

  • Challenges of developing equal partnerships in North-South research collaboration in the context of structural inequalities;
  • Barriers and enablers for carrying out trans-disciplinary development research;
  • Examples of success and failure: results from North-South collaborative projects.

We encourage proposals for presentations on topics ranging from specific project results to potential strategies for supporting trans-disciplinary North-South collaboration in development research. 

The call for abstracts – deadline is March 21.
