Development is a contested concept, which is increasingly coming under strain as result of the rise of ultra-nationalism around the world, the existential threat posed by climate change and processes of securitisation.  In order for it to be reinvigorated, it needs new forms of praxis, which are more socially and gender equitable. Only through its reconceptualisation and reoperationalisation can it become sustainable. This conference explores the ways in which this might happen, with a specific focus on the need for community and in particular, women’s inclusion in processes of socio-economic change.
