2024 Human Development Conference

Friday, Feb. 23, and Saturday, Feb. 24
Hesburgh Center for International Studies and Jenkins-Nanovic Halls

Within the myriad of disparities dispersed throughout our globe, among them is the notion that certain communities are inherently less capable of being agents in progress. This year’s Human Development Conference theme,  Power of the People: Uplifting Global Communities, seeks to highlight the importance of localization and ownership agendas within the development sphere. Bountiful agency has always existed within all communities. Our theme emphasizes the idea of practitioners and researchers working to collaborate with communities as opposed to working for communities. It is our strong belief that development goals can be achieved with better success if we engage the power that exists in all people around the globe.
