About the Centre

The Centre for Global Development (CGD) is an interdisciplinary research and teaching centre. Established in 1984, the Centre draws on the expertise of more than sixty members from different schools and faculties at the University of Leeds in the field of international development.

Our aim is to promote academic excellence through generating knowledge on development issues in low income countries, and pursuing collaborative research with institutions in the developing world.

In addition to making best use of existing knowledge and interdisciplinary practice at the University of Leeds, our core staff members also teach global development at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
