Research School for International Development


The mission of CERES focuses on resource problematics, in which many development problems either find their origin. Resources are not only natural but also human, including capital and knowledge; in fact, CERES' main thrust is the interaction between human and natural resources. Its core research question focuses on the processes and principles underlying perception, access, control and management of those resources in developing countries, and their implications for development. Its problem orientation indicates a multidisciplinary and comparative approach, using a variety of paradigms and a multilevel methodology, ranging from case studies to global surveys.
