From Growth to Sustainable and Inclusive Development: A Shift in Paradigm
In recent years the development debate has witnessed a paradigm shift, away from purely growth-oriented policies to broader concepts of sustainable and inclusive development. What is today’s perspective of International Organisations on the current trends in development policies? How can coherent trade policies contribute to achieving sustainable and inclusive development goals? What is the role of trade regulations? How is the social conceived to offer a better living for all?
This debate, hosted by the Centre for Development and Environment, will bring together academics and practitioners from International Organizations. The discussions will inquire in how far this paradigm shift has already materialized in different development concepts and policies.
The debate will be followed by the award ceremony for the winners of the International Geneva Award that prizes three scientific articles in the field of international studies.
Date: Thursday, 13 November 2014 - 16:15-19:00 (followed by a cocktail)
