NFU Conference 2010: Rethinking crises

This year the NFU Conference addresses multiple crises and development research. You are welcome to join the debate between 25-26 November at the MF Norwegian School of Theology, Oslo. Welcome!

Many societies and communities in the South are faced with multiple crises in the form of armed conflicts and violence, HIV/AIDS, climate change and financial crises. The conference will be an opportunity for exchange of knowledge and experience among researchers and practitioners from multiple fields of relevance for development studies. The NFU conference is intended as a forum for development research, and the conference is therefore open for workshop contributions on other relevant topics of the field. The plenary sessions:
