Webinar Series: Increasing Global South Participation in Development Economics

From September 2022

Building on their research and Call to Action, PEP Research Fellows will hold a series of webinars to advance the conversation and address the lack of diversity in Development Economics.

From September 2022, a group of PEP Research Fellows will hold a series of webinars to address the lack of diversity in Development Economics, which limits the discipline’s fairness and efficacy.

The focus topics of each event will build on the research conducted by the Research Fellows on the participation of Global South researchers in development economics debates and the points identified in the Call to Action.

During these events, panels of experts and practitioners from the field being examined will identify and discuss concrete actions to increase Southern participation in economic development journals, conferences, policy discussions, and consulting.

The first webinar, planned for September 23, 2 p.m. UTC, will focus on Southern participation in leading development economics journals. Consult the calendar below for information about the panel and moderators.

The second event will look at the role of development conference organisers in addressing the imbalance in regional representation and decolonising the field of Development Economics.

More details coming soon. Bookmark this page for the latest information about this webinar series.
