About the Centre for Global Development

The Centre for Global Development (CGD) is an interdisciplinary research centre established in 1984. CGD draws on the expertise of more than 60 members from different schools and faculties at the University of Leeds in the field of international development.

Home to the thriving and active Researchers in Development Network (RiDNet), which unites PhD and early career researchers across many universities, we pride ourselves on our range of seminars, discussions, workshops and conferences that focus on the complexities of international development research.

We promote academic excellence by generating knowledge on development issues in low income countries, and by pursuing collaborative research with institutions in the developing world. Read more about the centre…
