Call for Papers: UNU-WIDER Conference: COVID-19 and Development
CALL FOR PAPERS WIDER Development Conference COVID-19 and development – effects and new realities for the Global South
The 2021 WIDER Development Conference will take place online during 6-8 September 2021, with the aim of connecting research and policy communities around the world to discuss the effects of COVID-19 on development in the Global South, and how to move forward.
While not exclusive, we particularly welcome papers from researchers from the Global South on the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic for the developing world, and for the 2030 Agenda. We are especially interested in papers that offer new empirical evidence on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as papers that analyse the efficacy of policy responses to the pandemic in the Global South. Papers that look at the implications of the pandemic for the future of work, global governance, fragility and conflict, and environmental sustainability are also welcome.
Interested applicants wishing to present original research at the conference on the topics discussed above should complete the online application form. In addition to researchers from the Global South, we encourage submissions from early-career and female researchers.
The deadline for submitting proposals is 15 April 2021 23:59 UTC+2.
