ie.talks is the Department of Development Studies' public lecture series. Thus, organizers as well as lecturers are looking forward to a large attendance! No registration required.

The lecture and discussion series provides for information exchange between students, lecturers as well as members of research groups. Moreover, the department intends to further the dialogue with persons interested in critical and transdisciplinary development research.

To allow for different perspectives and to strenghten networking at the department, we invite guest lecturers from other scientific institutions.
