Centre for Development Studies (CDS)
The Centre for Development Studies (CDS) brings together staff, students and associates of the University of Bath who share a commitment to understanding development, defined as both a human aspiration and a historical process, operating at multiple levels and across many fields. The work of CDS links development to pursuit of human wellbeing, poverty reduction, environmental sustainability and social justice. It reflects the complexity of development as a contested concept, and the contribution diversity, plurality and collaboration can make to understanding development. CDS values academic autonomy, while supporting research that engages directly with policy, practice and power.
Research themes include:
- Development policy, practice, poverty and political economy
- Social justice, sustainability and wellbeing
- Conflict, migration and humanitarian action
- Global public health and education
