School of Social and Political Science

International development



Our research links key themes and questions in Social Anthropology to policies and plans in the arena of international development.

We bring concerns with power and politics to bear on diverse projects of social change and economic transformation, focusing in particular on the global challenges of health and energy access, the role of technology in development, the environment and natural resource extraction.


The International Development Cluster at the School of Social and Political Science (SPS) is a network of scholars across the school who are involved in international development research.
