The Cambridge International Development Conference (CAM.IDC) is an annual student-run conference organised by the Centre for Global Equality Student Society (CGE-SS).
Since its beginnings in 2007, the conference has created a space for students and professionals to connect with those working at the forefront of international development, whether formulating policy, developing new strategies on the ground, or expanding the academic discipline. The conference aims to provoke interesting conversations, to encourage new connections within the field, and to inspire delegates to engage with issues in international development.
Each year the conference engages with an area of critical importance in the field of international development, with previous themes including 'productive partnerships in equality’ and ‘learning from the past, educating for the future’
Past Cam.IDC speakers have included the CEO of Oxfam GB, the Shadow Minister for International Development, the CEO of Engineers Without Borders, the previous CEO of War Child, founder of Against Malaria Foundation, and senior members of organisations such as the Overseas Development Institute, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Chatham House.
