The Global Development Institute celebrates its first birthday

(16 February 2017)

The Global Development Institute (GDI) is celebrating one year of cutting edge research into global development. 

The GDI, which brings together the Institute for Development Policy and Management and the Brooks World Poverty Institute, was launched in February 2016 with a lecture on inequality by the Head of Oxfam International, Winnie Byanyima. 

The first year of the GDI has seen their research go from strength to strength, with academics bringing in over £5 million in research funding. In particular, the Effective States and Inclusive Development Centre received £3.1 million from the Department of International Development to continue their ground-breaking work until 2019. 

In the last 12 months researchers from the Institute have published over 100 journal articles, 20 book chapters and six books, including Bina Agarwal’s compendium Gender Challenges and David Hulme’s Should Rich Nations Help The Poor?
