Research at ISID

Research at ISID is intended to generate rigorous and relevant knowledge through which we can gain a deeper understanding of development processes and experiences. While building on disciplinary strengths across the social sciences and beyond, our research philosophy is to bridge disciplines and methodologies, and knowledge and practice.  Our research priorities are clustered around three broadly distinct but deeply interconnected domains: Poverty and Inequality; Governance and Society; and Environment and Sustainability. Important themes such as gender, ethnicity, and diversity recur and cut across each of these domains.  Our aim is to advance within and across disciplines through socially and politically relevant research on development.
