Dialogue between Development Think tanks in the face of transitions – REEDES Congress

May 29, 2024 | Events |

On Thursday 30 May at 13:00, we look forward to seeing you in the Salón de Grados of the Faculty of Political Science and Sociology of the Complutense University of Madrid for the round table ‘Dialogue between Development Think Tanks before transitions’, held within the framework of the 7th International Congress of Development Studies. We will be joined by four distinguished panelists: Anna Ayuso (CIDOB), Iliana Olivié (Real Instituto Elcano), Susanne Gratius (GATE Center) and Erika Rodríguez Pinzón (Fundación Carolina), and Kattya Cantante, President of REEDES, who will be in charge of moderating this promising conversation.

This roundtable analyses, from a female perspective, the differences and convergences of the socio-political, digital and ecological transition and transformation of societies. It does so from the perspective of different think-tanks in Spain in comparison with university academic research and their role in the decision-making process at national and European level. Secondly, it explores the consequences of new issues on the transition agenda such as artificial intelligence or digital challenges (disinformation) for the work of think-tanks. These issues and challenges are framed in a context of geopolitical fragmentation, polycrisis and uncertainty, and dominated by new conflicts such as Ukraine and Gaza, which will also be analysed.
