Our research takes a long-term perspective to investigate problems and processes of development. Our work challenges assumptions, drawing on multiple disciplines and cross-country comparisons to generate new thinking that is helping to bring about change.
We are a research-intensive graduate department offering a DPhil, an MPhil and four one-year MSc courses. We provide a supportive and welcoming environment to some 250 students from across the world.
