2012: Reimagining Development

CEPA’s 11th annual symposium, which was held on the 11th and 12th of December 2012, was an initiative to ‘reimagine’ development – what it is as well as how we get there or a critical assessment on whether the concept should be discarded altogether if it is obsolete to meet current challenges. This event provided a forum to share thinking, as well as stimulate new thinking about what the goal of development is or should be, and consequently the process of reaching it.

The proceedings of the symposium can be found on the symposium website. CEPA's Reimagining Development platform is a continuation of the ideas that emerged from this symposium.
