DevNet conferences are rotated between Aotearoa New Zealand Universities. The next DevNet conference is scheduled for 2008.

The Aotearoa New Zealand International Development Studies Network DevNet was established to link people and organisations in New Zealand involved and interested in the broad field of development.
