Call for Papers: Nordic Conference for Development Research
The role of knowledge production in and for development has been under increasing scrutiny. The questions such as “does development aid really work?” or “is there value-for the money?” are continuously posed by donors as well as politicians and general public. The pressures for showing results, outcomes and impacts have grown under the trends such as result-based management and evidence-based decision making.
