North American Network: Introduction

The North American Network aims to bring together scholars (both students and professors/researchers) and practitioners of development with an interest in human development and the capability approach. Newcomers and experts originating from or working in Canada, Mexico and the United States are all welcome to join the network. Our hope is that webinars, conferences, workshops and other fruitful collaborations will be advanced through the network.

Dear Members of the North American Network of the Human Development and Capability Association (NACA),

As you might already know, the HDCA 2021 Conference is being transformed into an “Open Forum” of events that will take place over a ten-day period between September 20-30, 2021. Regional Networks and Thematic Groups in the HDCA have been invited to organize (individually or with other RNs and TGs) up to four events to be held during this time.

This presents us with a wonderful opportunity to continue developing NACA’s impact and reach within HDCA and to create events that highlight issues and themes that motivate our scholarship and practice across North America. It is also a great opportunity for members (like you!) to take a more active and participatory role within NACA. (Also, the coordinators really need your help in pulling this together!)

So, we are writing to ask for your ideas and your participation in the HDCA Open Forum 2021. We want to organize events by, for, and with our members. If you have an abstract ready, or a tentative idea for a panel relating to Human Development, or if you’re planning an event with another RN or TG that NACA can contribute to, please reach out to us so that we can start to connect, organize, and plan collectively. Also, if you want to volunteer as a keynote speaker, or if you have a connection to a potential keynote, reach out to us.

All ideas and proposals are welcome—so reach out! We need to collect ideas or suggestions by June 20th so that we can meet the HDCA deadline. Feel free to email any one of us or all of us at the addresses below and/or to share some ideas right here!

Many thanks for your on-going support of NACA and best wishes,
