About the Centre
The Centre for Global Development (CGD) is an interdisciplinary research 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.
The Centre also hosts the Researchers in Development Network (RiDNet), which unites PhD and early career researchers across the University.
