Submission

The International Conference on Policy Diffusion and Development Cooperation aims to bring together local and international participants. Since this is an international event, those wishing to participate in the plenary discussions will require a minimum level of fluency in English and only submissions in English will be accepted.

Only proposals presenting research findings will be eligible. Applicants must be at least in the latter stages of study for a Masters in order to present at the sessions.

Undergraduate students are invited to present their research as a poster.

Abstracts of proposed papers and posters are due by 22 November 2017. All applicants will be notified by 22 December 2017. Complete papers are due by 1st April 2018.

We are unable to receive submissions by email, because all the selection process will take place on the platform. Since the account creation requires the addition of personal information, we cannot insert proposals in the system on behalf of participants.
