We have decided to postpone the PEGNet Conference 2020 on ‘Addressing Fragility and Conflict in Developing Countries’ that was scheduled for September 10 and 11 this year to September 9 and 10, 2021. This decision was based on the ongoing travel restrictions and social distancing measures that have been put into place to curb the spread of the corona virus. We regret this development but remain excited about the opportunity to partner with the Economic Policy Research Center (EPRC) as we prepare for the conference which will take place in Kampala next year. The conference will be financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), and supported by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), and the KfW German Development Bank.
The call for papers will be reopened early next year to allow for scientific contributions at the conference. In addition to the conference a methodological workshop for students will also be organized.
As always, we hope to see many familiar and new faces there.
