in the School of Global Development

The School of Global Development has a global reputation as a centre of research excellence – and this feeds directly into our teaching, as well as our policy work with international and national organisations.​

Our research addresses contemporary challenges in developing and transition economies via methodological and theoretical innovation, interdisciplinary collaboration and a commitment that our research should make a difference. We work closely with individuals and communities often taking a long-term approach.​

Staff research is listed on individual People pages; however the School also hosts a number of research groups, which are organised via three broad research areas: economic development, social development and sustainable development.
