UNRISD Deputy Director to Deliver Keynote Lecture on Making Development Research Policy Relevant

30 Jun 2009



UNRISD Deputy Director, Peter Utting, will be delivering a keynote lecture on Thursday 2 July on “How to Make Development Research Policy Relevant” at the Centre for International Development Issues (CIDIN), Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Utting's talk will be part of the opening session of the two day CERES Summer School focusing on “Development Research and Policy Practice”.

This year's Summer School will focus on effective linkages and productive interfaces between scientific research and international development programs. Attention will be given to ongoing Science-Policy programs within the framework of the International Cooperation Academy (also called IS-Academy) and DPRN. This two-day event will be organized to offer staff and PhD students from different universities the possibility to present their progress in field research. Their presentations will receive feedback from staff of the Dutch Ministry for Development Cooperation and staff from the non-governmental co-financing organizations involved in ongoing development programs.
