Establishment and implementation of development policies could pose various issues and challenges during its policymaking process. It is typical for a policymaker to go through complex problems and obstacles which are often closely interlinked. Thus, successful policymaking requires a solid awareness of specific issues with combination of full understanding of how they interact with each other. Moreover, the ability to design and formulate an effective development strategy must be complemented with the implementation capacity.
The Frontiers in Development Policy Conference aims to share empirical and policy research findings on development policy in the context of international development cooperation. This event will provide a platform not only to explore the complex processes of the global economic market, but also to debate policies and actions towards designing and executing high-quality development policies.
