Development Research Day
About Development Research Day
How it all started
The Development Research Day is an inter-disciplinary arrangement that was initiated in order to form a meeting ground for all researchers and students at Lund University who share an interest in development issues.
The first Development Research Day
The event was launched in 2002 by the Department of Political Science at Lund University. Since then the responsibility for hosting the arrangement has rotated between the departments of political science, human geography, sociology, economics and economic history and the multi-disciplinary centre LUCSUS (Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies).
During an intense day, current research within a selected, more specified theme of development research is presented. The main feature of the day is lectures by invited keynote speakers with international reputation. The aim of these lectures is to expose students to current research of an internationally high quality. The lectures are followed by a number of parallel sessions inviting shorter presentations by senior researchers, PhD-students, and graduate students and these sessions are open to a broader field of development research. The purpose of the parallel sessions is to display the various aspects of development research that take place at Lund University and to inspire meetings between researchers from different departments.
The Hydén Award for the best thesis on democratisation and development is awarded during the conference.
The Development Research Day 2022 – Celebrating 20 years!
19 October 2022 08:30 to 16:00 | Conference
The Development Research Day is an annual, inter-disciplinary event bringing together researchers and students interested in development research for a full day of activities.
This year, the departments of political science, human geography, sociology, economic history, and LUCSUS arrange the day jointly.
Call for papers/presentations
We invite researchers at Lund University, juniors including master students and seniors, to submit abstracts for the parallel sessions. All sessions are held in English and the topics of the presentations should be broadly within the field of development studies.
The abstract should be 100-150 words and can be submitted to ellen [dot] hillbom [at] ekh [dot] lu [dot] se.
Deadline for the submission is 15 September.
Past themes and conveners
Development Research Day 2021: "Development Research and Fieldwork: Challenges and Concerns"
- 13:00–13:10 Welcome, introduction and Hydén Award announcement
- 13:10–14:00 Panel discussion
- 14:00–14:15 Break
- 14:15–16:00 Discussions in smaller groups (in rooms Ed 230 and Ed 235)
Fieldwork is intrinsically linked to development research and viewed as a foundation for knowledge creation. However, it is becoming increasingly difficult to promote and conduct fieldwork for many reasons. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many to conduct online interviews instead of fieldwork due to travel restrictions and health concerns. How does that affect the research and understanding of the research topic? Others are hesitant to conduct fieldwork due to the negative impact of air travel on climate change. Violence and conflicts also raise concerns about personal safety. Similarly, increasing authoritarianism raises ethical concerns about censorship as well as safety concerns for the researcher as well as the people encountering the researcher during fieldwork. How does this affect our case selection, research methods and eventually our findings and conclusions?
Our panellists have extensive fieldwork experiences and are invited to reflect on the questions above:
- Jenny Lorenzen, Post Doc at the Department of Political Science
- Nicholas Loubere, Lecturer at the Centre for East and South-East Asian Studies
- Ekatherina Zhukova, Researcher at the Department of Political Science
- Anders Uhlin, Professor at the Department of Political Science
While there will be time for questions from the audience, the idea is that the discussions will continue in groups after a short break. The panel session will be moderated by Kristina Jönsson, Associate Professor at the Department of Political Science.
For this event, no registration is needed. It will take place on campus only with no digital streaming. All students and researchers at Lund University interested in development research are welcome!
Development Research Day 2020: "Rural Development in times of a global pandemic"
About Development Research Day
The Development Research Day is an inter-disciplinary arrangement that was initiated in order to form a meeting ground for all researchers and students at Lund University who share an interest in development issues.
The event was launched in 2002 by the Department of Political Science at Lund University. Since then the responsibility for hosting the arrangement has rotated between the departments of political science, human ecology and human geography, sociology, economics and economic history and the multi-disciplinary centre LUCSUS (Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies).
Given the unusual circumstances of a global pandemic which we are all living through, this will be the first year that the Development Research Day will take place online. A more decentralised structure is planned with a morning plenary on the theme of the current pandemic followed by parallel sessions hosted by various departments on the broad theme of rural development.
- The Hydén Award for the best thesis on democratisation and development is awarded during the conference.
- Morning plenary theme: "Development practice and research in times of pandemic: Challenges and new opportunities"
- Date & time: Wednesday October 21, 2020. Time: 10:00-12.00. Note that we will start on the hour exactly.
- Organizers: The Department of Human Geography
- Venue: The plenary session will be run online and everyone is welcome to join at the Zoom link: https://lu-se.zoom.us/j/66124643225
- No registration needed: All students and researchers from all departments interested in development are welcome.
Panel abstract: We are currently living through multiple crises unfolding within the exceptional circumstances of a global pandemic. From economic to ecological and political to personal, life on earth is being affected in profound ways. The very notion of development and visions for the future are at risk. However, we are also seeing incredible solidarity and collective mobilisation, which is in some cases bringing out the very best of what it is to be human. The plenary for Development Research Day 2020 will navigate these uncertain times of change.
Four panellists with different roles in development practice and research have been invited to deliberate on the challenges and opportunities of our current situation. The audience will also be invited to join the discussions with their own experiences and perspectives on the implications of the pandemic and the associated crises focused on finding openings for alternative scholarship and practices of hope.
- 10:00 – 10:15 Welcome and Introduction: Agnes Andersson Djurfeldt
- 10:15 – 11:45 Panel discussion on Development practice and research in times of pandemic: Challenges and new opportunities. This will include audience participation. Moderator: Vasna Ramasar, KEG
- 11:45 – 12:00 Hydén prize for best thesis within the field
To be confirmed but including representatives from MAKAAM, Forum for Women Farmer’s Rights in India, a Swedish development organisation; a research in development and a student of development
The panellists will be updated in due course.
In the afternoon, we move to decentralized parallel panels organized by two departments: Political Science and Department of Human Geography (KEG). The below outlines the program for the two parallel streams taking place via zoom from 13.00-16.00: Political Science Stream: Humanitarianism and development: new directions in research and practice.
Humanitarian responses to crises and emergencies have often been managed and studied as distinct from long-term development planning, yet this divide has become increasingly challenged by the emergence of a “development-humanitarian nexus” and now a “triple nexus” in which peace features as a third pillar. This panel brings together five interventions from practitioners and researchers that consider cases where the boundaries between humanitarianism and development are being reconfigured.
The panel will shed light on how the nexus is mobilized by different
organizations and across new configurations of actors, public and private, human and non-human. It will also interrogate if and how interventions premised on the nexus entrench or alter power relations in contexts of displacement, conflicts, and disasters.
- Charles Drury (SIDA Africa Unit and Graduate School) “The triple nexus:
- reflections from SIDA’s Africa Unit”
- Jenny lao Jörgensen (Division of Risk Management and Societal Safety)
- “Vulnerability in and between humanitarianism and development”
- Ekatherina Zhukova (Department of Political Science) “Chronic Crisis and
- Nuclear Disaster Humanitarianism: Recuperation of Chernobyl and
- Fukushima Children in Italy”
- Annika Bergman Rosamond and Catia Gregoratti (Department of Political
- Science) “Neoliberal turns in global humanitarian governance: corporations,
- celebrities and the construction of the entrepreneurial refugee woman”
- Daniel Möller Ölgaard (Department of Political Science) “Selling the distant
- other online: how algorithms shape humanitarian communication”
Zoom link: https://lu-se.zoom.us/j/69485577742
KEG’s panel will give space to different early career scholars to present their ongoing work with point of departure in this year’s overall theme of rural development:

Development Research Day 2019: "Translational Development Research"
Since the start in 2002 the Development Research Day has been organised annually by a department at Lund University. This year the Development Research Day is organised by Lund university centre for Sustainability studies (LUCSUS) and the theme is: Translational Development Research.
Translational science deals with the dilemma between basic research and the practical application of scientific results. It has a long tradition in medical sciences, where it is defined as research that applies findings from basic science to enhance human health and well- being. With increasing demands from society at large and funding agencies in particular for research to be “useful” and have “societal impact”, can we learn anything from a decade* of translational science in medicine? In 2010, the British Department for International Development (DFID) introduced the “Theory of Change” as a method for promoting societal impacts from research, and we can see how that has inspired agencies in Sweden and the EU to promote similar agendas.
In the morning session of the Development Research Day 2019 we will discuss these issues with the help of invited scholars. The afternoon session is as usually devoted to presentations by researchers at Lund University. We particularly encourage early career researchers and MSc students to present their research.

Given today’s heated discussions on globalization and its effects on both the developing South and the industrialized North, this year’s Development Research Day will focus on global inequality and development. While the effects of globalization are very much present in our daily lives, it is far from a new phenomenon. In many ways the current globalization trend is similar to what we saw in the first decades of the 20th century. In both periods there has been convergence between countries, economic growth and improvements in individuals’ standards of living and capabilities. However, in both periods there has also been increasing divergence in the form of rising inequality, with those benefitting from the process forging ahead and others losing out and falling behind. From a global perspective, the world today is complex, experiencing improvements in incomes, health, education, etc. in absolute numbers, while at the same time being challenged by the unequal distribution of the world’s resources. The aim of the day is to discuss: lessons learned from previous waves of globalization; trends in global development and inequality; the effect of globalization on the standards of living and capabilities of people all over the globe; and perhaps shed some light on where we may be heading in the near future.

The theme of the conference addresses the second of the sustainable development goals (SDG 2): End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture. Still today, almost 800 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead an active and healthy life. The vast majority live in developing countries. It is currently widely agreed that there are a number of dimensions of food and nutrition security that needs to be fulfilled simultaneously in order to eradicate hunger and to reduce food insecurity globally. Dietary change related to increasing incomes and migration to urban areas adds to the complexity of the situation. In many developing countries there is a high prevalence of both undernutrition and overnutrition.
