Research Papers

Are you involved in research focusing on a topic with links to the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development in a low or medium income country? Then we invite you to present your work at DevRes 2024.

We are particularly interested in research abstracts where contributions:

a) problematize the challenges related to reaching the SDGs and the overarching 2030 Agenda due to tensions in development priorities linked to deepening polarization in politics/policies and/or finances;  

b) discuss conflicts of objectives between and among stakeholders, and/or between goals, targets and measurements. 

c) examine empirical cases and/or cross-cutting issues that contribute to or hamper SDG achievements, in a low or medium-income country setting.  

The parallell research paper sessions will be scheduled in 90-minute slots, and we encourage submissions of both individual as well as research panel presentations, consisting of researchers and collaborating partners.
