Event description
The International Development Conference is a one-day interdisciplinary conference held at the University of Toronto’s Scarborough Campus.

About this Event

The mission of the International Development Conference is to provide an engaging forum for students, academics, and development professionals to engage in critical and meaningful discussions pertaining to the field of international development. International development is a multidisciplinary field that studies and deconstructs a multiplicity of issues. This year's International Development Conference hopes to encourage people of all interests and disciplines to critically reflect on their practice, to put values of equity and sustainability at the forefront of all their decisions.

This year’s theme “Angles” and is described as follows:

International Development as a field is rife with contention and disagreement, as divergent approaches and conflicting conceptions of what “development” entails clash with each other. To truly understand the fault-lines within development practice and theory, one must first deconstruct an ever-expanding web of visions of what development is. No single issue in development exists in a void. Rather, every issue in the field finds itself the subject of several different and conflicting lines of thought. In light of the renewed importance of the dialogue between different views of development, the International Development Conference 2020 shall explore the different “Angles” from which development is viewed.

We do not provide visa letters for foreign delegates.
