Description

Is Market-led Development Enough? Global Comparisons and the Challenges Lying Ahead


You are very warmly invited to join us for the 2020 edition of the Westminster Development Studies Symposium organised by the University of Westminster’s Development Policy Network in collaboration with the Westminster International University in Tashkent.


We are looking forward to welcoming the following keynote speakers:

  • Professor Andy Mckay (University of Sussex)
  • Dr Miguel Niño-Zarazúa (United Nations University World Institute for Development, UNU-WIDER)
  • Professor Hans-Jörg Schmerer (FernUniversität in Hagen)


The event is now in its third year. Last year, our keynote speaker, Prof Kunal Sen, talked about whether globalisation can cause premature deindustrialisation. You can find further information on last year’s event here: Westminster Development Studies Symposium 2019


For the 2020 round of the Symposium, we will facilitate a discussion on the debate regarding market-led approaches to development, the challenges and opportunities these pose for countries in the Global South, and the alternatives we have available; with specific attention to dynamics of adverse incorporations into global production networks and social policy provisions.


If you would like to join us as a non-presenting delegate please continue to sign-up via Eventbrite.

However, if you are interested in presenting a paper, please submit your full papers or extended abstracts (1000 word max.) to Serena Masino (s.masino@westminster.ac.uk), by 31st March 2020. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by 15th April 2020. The call for papers is available here.


There is no charge to attend the workshop. The workshop organizers will cover meals and refreshments. Participants will be required to pay for their own travel and accommodation.


For any further information or clarification, do not hesitate to get in touch with Serena Masino (s.masino@westminster.ac.uk) or Karen Jackson (k.jackson@westminster.ac.uk).
