We are committed to research that makes a genuine contribution

DEV is committed to research that makes a genuine contribution to resolving major global challenges such as poverty reduction and environmental sustainability. This is not just about conducting surveys, publishing academic papers and writing books (although we do a lot of that too).

DEV researchers work very closely with a large number of organisations involved in international development, including:

  • All the main UN agencies (such as the World Bank and World Health Organisation)
  • All the main bilateral aid agencies (such as the Department for International Development)
  • Government agencies in low and middle income countries
  • International charities and NGOs (such as Oxfam and Christian Aid)
  • Local NGOs and charities in low to middle income countries
