Debating Development

Debating Development is a public platform for reflection on topics of development. Each topic is introduced on the basis of a presentation by a renowned speaker. A discussant sets the stage for further debate. Our speakers come from international institutes, civil society and academia. The discussions are moderated by the academic staff of UAntwerp. The debates of this year (2020) will be on Decolonization


Debating Development is a collaboration between the Institute of Development Policy (IOB) and USOS. It receives financial support from VLIR-UOS. Debating Development is part of the Global Minds programme of the University of Antwerp.
