International Development Project Management
Projects undertaken with the broad goal of improving living conditions in developing countries are becoming increasingly important. These international development (ID) projects are often characterised by a need for a high level of adaptability in a complex and frequently uncertain environment in which the professional, institutional, societal or infrastructural support structures usually associated with organized programme and project activities are either absent or partial.

We encourage the submission of papers that contribute to the exploration and development of the approaches to project based work and the significance of the particular and varied circumstances that characterise ID focused work.

Papers can address a wide range of issues, including but not limited to:
- Tools, techniques and methodological approaches to project management in the ID sector;
- Identification of key failure points, success factors, and systems for the management of programmes;
- Assessing sustainability and impact;
- How different theoretical lenses can enrich our understanding of the particularities of ID projects and programmes;
- Examining the unique challenges faced in inter-organisational ID projects;
- Applicable lessons for the broader discipline of project management.

All manuscripts will be peer reviewed for this special issue. Submissions should be uploaded to before 18th September 2015.
