Development Transitions workshops funded by YMP, on 11 December

The York-Maastricht Partnership Investment Fund has funded four interdisciplinary workshops on Development Transformations, involving senior and early career researchers from York, Maastricht and academic partners from Global South institutions.

The first workshop will focus on States and Emerging Markets, and will take place on 11 December at the University of York, hosted by the Interdisciplinary Global Development Centre.

Research on the global south, global governance, and global political economy at the University of York and Maastricht University is committed to exploring ‘doing development differently’ and articulating creative, interdisciplinary and just alternatives to the mainstream inequitable and unsustainable development policies and practices that are currently mainstream.

Representatives of York and Maastricht development groups, led by Prof. Valentina Mazzucato and Prof. Jean Grugel (York), met in Spring 2019 to identify joint areas for future cooperation, focusing in particular on the promotion of Development Transformations. To provide a strong foundation for the partnership we committed to a year-long series of interdisciplinary workshops, each focusing on a different dimension of transformation, culminating in a policy colloquium in Brussels.

Each workshop will compare approaches, reflect on the state of the art and

  • identify specific areas where commonalities and synergies lie, identify integration opportunities for a truly interdisciplinary approach, and outline joint research projects including possible funding bids;
  • critically situate York-Maastricht work – and research in this area more widely – in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals and the challenge of ‘Leaving No One Behind’.

The first of the Development Transformations workshops will focus on States and Emerging Markets, and is co-organised by Jean Grugel (York) and Adam Dixon (Maastricht) and will take place on 11 December at the University of York, hosted by the Interdisciplinary Global Development Centre.
