There are four things that we definitely know “about us”:
We are academics and teachers of Development Studies who initially met in 2010 at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) and who decided to create a platform to debate and spearhead the formation of a subject association. In September 2011, 60 of us met at Unisa and founded this Association.
We want to link all academics working in Development Studies in universities throughout South Africa.
The Association is a work in progress; we are relying on academics and teachers to work together with us in the formation of this Association.
We are planning a conference in 2013 where all the discussions of this website will be constituted and finalised into a formalised Association and website.
