Development is the flagship journal of the Society for International Development (SID) published for over 50 years. With alternative perspectives on civil society, development policy and community based strategies for livelihoods, gender and social justice, Development provides readers with sharp, critical views and in-depth analysis on the challenging issues of today's rapidly changing world.
Development was founded in 1957 as the journal of the Society for International Development. Since then, the journal has provided a space for debate and cross-fertilization on the most topical issues in the development arena. By providing articles by a wide variety of actors such as development practitioners, academics and activists, it has always aimed to bridge the gap between development theory and practice. Over the years, it has brought to international attention issues that were left on the margins, being one of the first publications to talk about gender issues or the link between development and the environment.
In its 55 years, Development has been both the mirror and the vanguard of the Society, reflecting what SID was experiencing as well as paving the way for new ideas and programmes. With its innovative and fresh insights, it has provided the Society with a tool that could generate a genuine dialogue on issues ranging from the future of development, sustainable livelihoods, gender empowerment, and economic justice. Its audience has grown consistently over the years, as well as its geographical span. In the 1980s, in order to reach out to Latin America, a Spanish version called Desarrollo was also printed. Ad hoc issues have also been translated into French, Italian and Swahili.
As Development approaches its 6th decade, it remains provocative and challenging as ever, tackling topical issues such as sustainability, green economy, cosmovisions and new forms of citizen participation.
