Devnet 2016

‘Pacific Currents, Global Tides’

5 – 7 December 2016, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

In December, 2016, Victoria University hosted the DevNet 2016 Conference. The theme, ‘Pacific Currents, Global Tides’, reflects a desire to focus both on the ways in which global trends in development theory, policy and practice flow through to the wider pacific region and also on how current thinking and practice within the region can contribute to and challenge such global tides.

The conference will have a strong emphasis on the Pacific region and involvement of practitioners and community development workers. We encourage groups to participate in sessions in a variety of formats to open discussion, interaction and networking. Workshops, panels, ‘unconference’ formats as well as research-based presentations are all welcome.

See conference handbook.
