Conference Theme

The conference theme "A World United: Allies in Development" was chosen with the hope of inspiring thoughtful conversations about the important relationships that can both frustrate and facilitate development. Although we are primarily concerned with questions of personal relationships in which individuals and groups of people ally themselves with one another to bring about ethical development, this theme is also meant to capture alliances at every level of development, including alliances between and across nation states, corporations, multinational groups, NGOs, etc.
