Panel (CODE: 24): RCSD Chiang Mai Roundtable Discussion: "Post-colonial Development Studies: Views from the South"

Post-colonial Development Studies: Views from the South   Development studies proliferated after the World War II with the influence of Modernization Theories and in the context of North-South relation during the first two decades of development era. World political economic changes following the end of the Cold War and imminent forces of globalization have re-arranged the landscape of development in the Developing World. Many have experienced convergent path of resurgent neo-liberal domination. Some have sought to alternative and more humanized development programs. Emerging post-colonial social theories have also offered different perspectives in development and development studies. This roundtable discussion aims to provide the venue to re-think about development studies within these contexts. The panel brings the academics and development practitioners alike to recollect development studies and cast for vision of them, not only in the traditional North-South relation but also in the South-South relations in the respective areas of development, environmental and resource management, gender, and sustainable development, health, culture, ethnicity and community particularly the Southeast Asian region as the case in point.
