The Centre for Development Studies (CDS) research is deeply rooted in moral and political discourse over what development means, should mean and can be changed. This embraces critical reflection on ideals of modernity and emancipation rooted in both the Western Enlightenment and colonial history. It also draws upon more recent formulations of international development as the pursuit of social justice, human capability, wellbeing and ecological sustainability.
