The University of York and the University of Maastricht development groups met in Spring 2019 to identify joint areas for future cooperation, focusing in particular on the promotion of Development Transformations. To provide a strong foundation for the partnership we committed to run a year-long series of interdisciplinary workshops, each focussing on a different dimension of transformation, culminating in a policy colloquium in Brussels.

The first of the Development Transformations focuses on States and Emerging Markets, organised by Jean Grugel (York) and Adam Dixon (Maastricht) and the first workshop will take place on 11th December 2019 at the University of York, hosted by the IGDC.

We envisage a small team (5-7) of researchers from each university coming together to discuss their research and propose potential new areas for future research collaboration. Workshop participants will be asked to:

  1. Provide a short outline of your relevant research in this area, why it is significant to the theme of the workshop and how it relates to development transformations
  2. Consider critically how current research on the global south in York and/or Maastricht is currently taking place and how it could effectively be taken forward in the future or scaled up, so as to make sense of the challenges faced by states, communities, producers and citizens in the global south in the current development climate.
  3. Reflect on and discuss ideas, themes, research questions and future projects the York Maastricht Partnership (YMP) should address in relation to states and emerging markets, and the challenges and possibilities of work in this area.

All submissions are to be emailed directly to Jean Grugel (jean.grugel@york.ac.uk) as soon as possible.
