Session Abstract

Since 2011 EADI’s International Accreditation Council (IAC) has accredited and reaccredited a number of MA programmes in Development Studies, notably in China, Colombia, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Samoa and the United Kingdom. The roundtable, featuring programme leaders and student delegates of the accredited programmes in question will highlight post-accreditation experiences on the 3 key areas of IAC’s accreditation, i.e. inter/multidisciplinarity, context-sensitivity and policy relevance paying particular attention to issues of solidarity, peace and social justice. The main entry points for debate are:

  • How they work on inter/multidisciplinarity on these issues
  • How they build in context-sensitivity
  • How they engage with the development process and find the balance between conceptual analysis and influencing policy processes and practice,
  • How they enhance critical thinking around student research, research methods in particular.
  • What are the possible areas of cooperation amongst accredited programmes.
