International Development

Organisational unit: Research Grouping

Organisation profile

The Faculty of Social Sciences and Law's International Development Group has been established as a diverse group, focused on a wide variety of problems that confront the global South. Its membership includes colleagues from all of the faculty's schools and the group is contributing to developing the intellectual agenda for International Development within the University. The group has been closely linked to the Cabot Institute’s International Development Group, often co-hosting events and seminar series.  In this capacity, the group also endeavours to build richer interdisciplinary dialogues with scientists and engineers whose research raises a host of social challenges as it shaped and shapes social relations in the global South.

Members of the group are keen to work collectively to develop research agenda able to exploit funding opportunities as they arise.  In addition to seeking opportunities for contributing to interdisciplinary academic research, the also group welcomes those whose research expertise lies in working with development agencies on a consultancy basis.

Colleagues and doctoral students who wish to pursue their research in collaboration with those who work in International Development both within the University and outside of it, are invited to contact Elizabeth Fortin ( in the first instance.
