an exciting new year ahead

January 4, 2011


I will mark the start of this new year with a long overdue post on the exciting events ahead for 2011. Despite keeping you up to speed with my work and reflections on the world of development and poverty by means of this blog, I am still very old-fashioned when it comes to my diary. I note everything down in a leather organizer and although this means having to refill agendas every year and inevitably duplicating information on new pages, there is a real upside to this: noting down all the exciting events for the upcoming 12 months! So here they are so far:

Poverty and Social Exclusion International Conference “Measuring Poverty – The State of Art” in Bristol. The event marks the second Peter Townsend Memorial Conference and takes place on the 22nd and 23rd of January. Speakers include David Gordon, Jonathan Bradshaw and Brian Nolan and presentations and discussions will focus on the state of affairs with respect to poverty measurement around the world.

- 3rd Conference of the International Society of Child Indicators (ISCI) at the University of York, 27-29 July, 2011. ISCI was founded in 2006 and organized its first conference in Chicago in 2007. In addition to the conference, the society also edits the journal Child Indicators Research, which is published by Springer and whose articles are widely used and cited.

EADI/DSA General Conference 2011 from 19-22 September in York entitled “Rethinking Development in an Age of Scarcity and Uncertainty”. Both EADI and DSA are renown associations in the field of development and their conferences are at the forefront of the debate. This joint conference thus promises to bring together many experts from the field and put forward new ideas and challenges.
