Long Abstract

South-South relations are a major axis of contemporary development processes and outcomes. The prominence of such relations has surged across a number of domains, including food and agriculture, migration, trade, technology transfer, policy cooperation. Many hope that South-South relations can unsettle in positive ways the status quo, while others worry that the more negative aspects of South-North relations may be reproduced. Covid-19 has augmented the relevance of considering South-South relations as a key aspect of development. Flows of finance, food and people have been significantly impacted, while South-South supplies of medical goods are a key aspect of the immediate response. Longer-term, Covid-19 accentuates the need to consider the role of South-South relations in contributing to ‘building back better’ towards global sustainable development.

This panel welcomes abstract submissions for papers on any or multiple domains of South-South relations. Papers could engage with, but are not limited to, the following questions:

• How have South-South relations been impacted by, and shaped responses to, the multiple pressures unsettling development, including multipolarity, Covid-19, climate change, populism and racial violence?

• What is the potential for South-South relations to contribute to ‘build back better’?

Format: Paper sessions will primarily be synchronous, but would also be open to some asynchronous contributions e.g. where the presentation is played as a video, but the presenter participates in live Q&A. We will also convene an open format and synchronous roundtable discussion on this theme, which anyone registered for the conference can participate in without any prior submission or notification necessary.
