In 2017, EADI and NFU join forces together with the University of Bergen as the local host to invite scholars, policymakers and practitioners to a three-day conference to engage in new approaches to understand global challenges and reflect on paths forward.

Organised every third year, the EADI General Conference serves as the association’s public forum for academic exchange, reflection and debate on pressing global and developmental questions. In the Nordic context, the biennial Nordic Development Conference is organized by one of the respective national development research associations.

The conference is a joint partnership between the European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes (EADI), the Norwegian Association of Development Research (NFU), Chr. Michelsen Institute (CMI) and the the University of Bergen.
