Worldly IHEID-ers, who are your favorite development bloggers? Or to expand it a little, your favorite independent related-to-development writers and sites?
Following this year’s round of the awkwardly named Aid Blogger’s Best Awards (ABBAs) there has been a bit of back-and-forth about the fact that the popularly-elected “best blogs” are mostly written by white male western academics. The gender divide is puzzling considering the number of women in development (witness IHEID’s own gender divide).
I don’t really want to wade into the “why” debate, but I would like to diversify at least our own blogroll (on the right hand side there), so nominate away! Let’s put our ridiculous geographic diversity to work! Any region, any language, any (development-ish) focus. You can even list another male western academic if you like.
