2019 Human Development Conference

Friday, February 22, 2019 (All day) to Saturday, February 23, 2019 (All day)

 

The University of Notre Dame’s Human Development Conference is an annual, student-led conference that provides a platform for dialogue in which students from many academic backgrounds and disciplines can share their development-focused research.

This year's focus is "Engaging with Empathy: a preferential option for the poor in development" In order to ensure that past historic injustices are not repeated and to promote the human dignity of all individuals, it is necessary to engage with empathy and to view research, problems, and policies from the perspective of those most affected by development challenges. By providing a preferential option for the poor, or acting in solidarity with marginalized individuals, the feasibility and acceptance of potential solutions on the ground can be improved. This approach transforms the language of development from “donor” and “recipient” into a partnership where all parties contribute and benefit. This theme seeks to highlight the need for such partnerships by engaging empathetically with all stakeholders during the process of human development. 

Sponsored by the Ford Family Program in Human Development, SIT Study Abroad School for International Training, and Center for Social Concerns.
