Call for Papers
In 2015, the European Union marks for the first time in its history the European Year of Development. This will bring Europe in general to the forefront of international efforts aimed at evaluating and (re)formulating a new global agenda on international development following the expiration in 2015 of the deadline set for the fulfilment of the UN Millennium Development Goals. However, Europe has been a particularly sensitive concept and actor throughout the history of development research and policies even if the context has significantly changed since the first debates on such topics. Where does Europe stand now in international development? Which new phenomena and actors matter for Europe’s development policies and external action? How can European teaching and research in the field contribute to better global policies?
IDC members Simon Lightfoot (University of Leeds) and Luciana Alexandra Ghica (University of Bucharest) invite scholars from various disciplines to reflect upon such issues and contribute to a special issue on Europe and the New Global Agenda on International Development (2/2015) at the Annals of the University of Bucharest. Political Science Series*. Articles should be primarily in English but texts in other international languages may also be considered.
Submission deadline: 15 July 2015
