Our research tackles the complex and persistent challenges of global poverty and injustice. We take a multidisciplinary approach and work with an international network of partners to develop research which we actively seek to see applied in development policy and practice.

For 50 years, IDS research has helped to shape development thinking and practice, focussing on people-centred perspectives and taking an integrated approach to research, learning and communication.
