Conference: The Challenges for Participatory Development in Contemporary Development Practice

28-29 November 2012, Manning Clark Lecture Theatre, ANU

This is the third conference as part of the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID) Universities Linkages, which brings scholars and aid practitioners together to discuss important development issues. The programme has a stunning list of keynote and other speakers and will run with 6 parallel sessions over two days (the keynote speakers are Robert Chambers, Gita Sen, Emele Duituturaga and Alan Fowler). Full details of the conference, including a complete list of speakers and abstracts is available on the conference website.

Unfortunately, this conference is already fully subscribed, with more than 450 registered participants, so we’ve listed papers relevant to the Pacific in the hope that you might contact the speakers directly to learn more about their work:
