The School of International Development are delighted to be recently ranked first for overall research quality, impact, environment and outputs in development studies in the Research Excellence Framework, which assesses the research quality of UK Universities. (Times Higher REF Analysis 2021). 91% of DEV’s research was judged as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’. We believe that they key to this success is the close, and often long term, relationships between DEV staff and individuals, communities and organisations globally, . Our research is informed by these relationships and feeds directly into our teaching and policy work with international and national organisations.

We wanted to communicate our sincere thanks to all the talented and dedicated research collaborators we have been privileged to work with since August 2013 (the beginning of the REF assessment period). We have examined our records to put together this selection, recognising this will not be everyone and we know there are many individuals within each organisation that also played their part. We could not have achieved our research without the efforts of each and every individual - we thank you all.
