About us

The Centre for Development Studies (CDS) brings together staff, students and associates of the University of Bath. Much of our work is focussed on the interaction between change at local, national and global levels; the dynamics of inequality, poverty, gender and other forms of discrimination; the importance (and challenge) of doing research spanning different academic disciplines and retaining academic independence while also engaging directly in policy, practice and power relations.
