Call for Papers: From 19-21 April 2018: International Colloquium “Addressing the Development Implications of Illicit Economies: A Cross-Sectoral and Cross-Disciplinary Exchange”
From 19-21 April 2018, GPDPD will host the International Colloquium “Addressing the Development Implications of Illicit Economies: A Cross-Sectoral and Cross-Disciplinary Exchange” on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), and under the political patronage of the German Federal Government’s Drug Commissioner. The event is organised in close cooperation with Christian Aid and the University of Glasgow, as well as with Open Society Foundations (OSF) and the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) of the University of London.
The interdisciplinary Colloquium will shed light on the implications of illicit economies for societal development. It will address central issues such as the relation between illegal drug markets and poverty, fragile government institutions, a lack of access to legal markets, and violence.
The event aims at promoting exchange between scholars, government representatives, experts from international organisations, and civil society to discuss and develop innovative approaches for research and policy.
The Colloquium will take place at the SOAS campus in London.
Abstracts can be submitted until 23 March 2018. Details on the Call for Papers and registration can be found at http://www.illicit2018.org/.
