The DSA Annual Conference 2013 will be co-hosted by the University of Birmingham’s International Development Department on 15 November. It will take the form of a one day Conference with an open call for panels and papers, reflecting a more democratic process of bringing together current research and thinking on development related issues.

This panel will analyse the varied, invented meanings of citizenship in different regional and national contexts in the Global South. They aim to identify patterns of contentious politics in claiming and demanding rights at regional or sub-regional levels, as well as examining how notions of ‘citizenship pacts’ play a role in the repoliticisation of development. The panel welcomes papers that address the changing dimensions of citizenship and its link to a new development agenda from comparative and multidisciplinary perspectives.

Deadline for papers is 25 June, More information about submitting papers on our events page.
