Keeping Faith in 2030:
Religions and Development in Ethiopia
Addis Ababa, May 31 – June 1, 2018
Deadline for abstract submission: April 6, 2018
The CFEE is a partner of a conference to be held in Addis Ababa, May 31 – June 1, 2018 as part of the international research network “Keeping Faith in 2030: Religions and the Sustainable Development Goals”, convened by the University of Leeds and the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in London.
In recent years development agencies and major funders in the West have begun to recognise the role of religions in their work and are now increasingly funding projects that include religious actors.
This corresponds to growing research on religion and development, and a wider interest of religion in the public sphere. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) process has also laid a greater focus on the cultural and religious roots of development goals and practices, seeking to include local actors on a greater scale than before.
This interdisciplinary two-day conference will bring together academics and practitioners to explore how this global interest in the intersection between religions and development relates to current debates and practices in Ethiopia.
Please submit a title and abstract (250 words) by April 6, 2018 to: joerg[dot]haustein[at]soas[dot]ac[dot]uk
