ESID receives major funding boost

(10 October 2016)

The Department for International Development (DFID) has awarded The Effective States and Inclusive Development Research Centre (ESID) an additional £3.1 million to extend the Centre’s pioneering research until 2019. This brings the total award of funding for ESID to £9.3 million over nine years. 

Based at the Global Development Institute, part of the School of Environment, Education and Development (SEED), ESID is a global partnership spanning 16 countries investigating how politics shape development. 

Chief Executive of ESID Professor David Hulme said “For the past five years, ESID has been at the cutting edge of understanding how politics shape development and what this means for governments, civil societies and development partners. This award shows our research is more relevant than ever and we are very excited about the potential for the next phase.”
