Event details

The global pandemic has created many challenges for researchers in the field of international development, not least the restrictions on travel and movement.  However, has Covid-19 actually triggered  welcome changes? Has the pandemic , for instance,  led to changes that address inequitable power relations between researchers in the Global North and South and speak to a decolonising agenda? How can any positive changes be sustained? In a roundtable format, a panel of speakers will outline their experiences and address these questions.

This webinar is co-organised by the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations (CTPSR) at Coventry University and the Centre for Development Studies (CDS) at the University of Bath.
