The Researchers in Development Network (RiDNet) is pleased to announce the 6th Annual RiDNet Conference to take place on the 19th of March 2018 at the University of Leeds under the theme:
“Measuring, Evaluating and Documenting Development: Linking Academia and Practice”
The conference will focus on three themes:
1.Measuring and evaluating development: qualitative, quantitative and/or mixed approaches to measuring impact; monitoring and evaluation in NGO and donor projects, feeding research into practice, participatory approaches to evaluating research and practice, benefits and/or challenges of ‘measuring’ development, indicators and global goals (e.g. SDGs).
2.Reporting and documenting development: explores how development is reported in the various media (mass media, social media), what effect(s) this has on the various stakeholders (donor communities, affected communities, governments, NGOs, general public perceptions etc). New, innovative and/or disruptive ways of documenting and reporting development.
3.Linking academia and practice: research collaboration with practitioners in the field, local or international organisations (including NGOs/INGOs), exploring ways of academia influencing policy and policymakers, finding common ground between academic research and practitioners including the challenges, benefits or rewards of collaborative working between academia and practice in development research.
