Speakers: Kei Otsuki (editor, author) and Griet Steel (author)

Description: This Handbook demonstrates that global linkages, flows and circulations merit a more central place in theorization about development. Calling for a mobilities turn, it challenges the sedentarist assumptions which still underlie development policy making and planning for the future. The aim of the discussion is to  reflect on the usefulness of this translocal perspectives in our own research and the agenda to establish ‘solidarity’ in development planning and projects.

Cheney, K., & Sinervo, A. (eds). Disadvantaged Childhoods and Humanitarian Intervention (2019).  Palgrave Macmillan.

Speaker: Aviva Sinervo

Description: This edited volume explores how transnational charitable industries are created and mobilized around childhood need in order to redirect global resource flows and sentiments to address concerns of child suffering. The chapters discuss examples from around the world to show how, as much as these processes can help achieve the goals of aid organizations, such practices can also perpetuate the conditions that organizations seek to alleviate and thereby endanger the very children they intend to help.
