About the Institute for the Study of International Development
ISID is a interdisciplinary institute in the Faculty of Arts with over 40 members from various faculties. It also works with an international community of scholars, development groups, and the public. Interdisciplinary research sponsored by ISID revolves around four themes: democracy and democratization; economic development; states and state-building; and social pluralism and civil society. It organizes seminars and conferences on development issues related to these themes.
Graduate students can register in the Development Studies Option (DSO), a cross-disciplinary M.A. program in which six departments participate:
Further information about this option is available from each of these departments, as well as on the ISID website.
