3rd International Conference on Globalization and Development

The Research Training Group "Globalization and Development" (GlaD) is organizing an international conference, to be held on July 5-6, 2021, in Göttingen, Germany.

We regret to announce that the COVID-19 situation has not sufficiently improved for us to be allowed to hold the conference in a hybrid format. For online participants, that does not mean any change, and for all presenters who registered to present in person the presentation format is automatically changed to virtual. Even though we would have been thrilled to welcome all presenters in Göttingen, we have worked out a program that will allow for lively virtual exchange both in and around the sessions. Virtual conference attendance is free of charge.

Online Listener:
Everyone is very welcome to attend the conference as an online listener. You can register as listener here.


The conference program will focus on globalization and development topics.
Fields of particular interest are:

  • Conflict
  • Education
  • Gender
  • Growth
  • Health
  • International organizations
  • Labor markets
  • Microfinance
  • Migration
  • Methods and measurement

  • Risk and vulnerability
  • Social networks
