UPDATE [July 4, 2024]: Due to high demand we decided to re-open the registration again. However, we cannot guarantee dinner on Friday night for new registrations. Please indicate whether you are interested in being on the waiting list. Note: We will close the registration on August 15th. 

After the great success of the first Homecoming, the second Homecoming will be hosted on September 27 and 28. This event brings together former and current academics, practitioners, and students from the Göttingen School of Development Economics to foster our community, exchange experiences and insights, and return once more to lovely Göttingen. 

We are looking forward to two days full of interesting discussion panels, presentations, and social activities. Moreover, we host a Career Market which will offer the opportunity to gain insights into practical work in the field of development.

We are excited to announce Prof. Francisco H. G. Ferreira (LSE) as our keynote speaker who will hold the Stephan Klasen Lecture.

Together with Sarah (Langlotz) and Lennart (Kaplan), we will host the Digital Development Dialogue (3D) on Friday afternoon. Our 3D-guests will be Prof. Axel Dreher (Heidelberg University), Prof. Jochen Kluve (KfW), and Peter Krahl (German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development). They will talk about Development Effectiveness in Times of Shifting Geopolitics.

Moreover, Prof. Anna Minasyan (University of Groningen) will moderate on Saturday morning a panel discussion on "Forgotten Conflicts". Our panelists include Prof. Martin Gassebner (Leibniz Universität Hannover), Dr. Tatiana Orozco García (International Security and Development Center), and Prof. Philip Verwimp (Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management and Households in Conflict Network HiCN). 

More panels and guests will be announced soon.

First registration was open from May 3 to June 15.

Registration for this event is currently open.
