the Human Development Conference

at the University of Notre Dame

Welcome to the home page of the second annual Human Development Conference (HDC). Under the theme "People, Power, and Pragmatism: The Future of Development in Our Changing World," the 2010 conference will take place on the campus of the University of Notre Dame on February 26-27, and will draw together ambitious, innovative young development thinkers from across the nation and globe. It is our hope that dialogue and engagement between these students, their peers, and distinguished academics will generate a deeper commitment to and understanding of how to bring forth authentic development that respects human dignity.
