CDS has a strong focus on engagement with the local and has research expertise in countries ranging from Bangladesh to Zambia, Malaysia to Peru. We are committed to making connections between the global north and the global south, relating local, national and international levels of analysis as we work to link theory with practice and research with action. CDS research is organised around, though not limited to, four core themes: gender, childhood and youth; insecurity and conflict; markets, microfinance and social inclusion; wellbeing and human development. Our research attracts major grants and we frequently collaborate with development donors and NGOs from around the world as well as research councils.

Our work explores not just the economic aspects of this challenge, but also its social, political and philosophical dimensions. We address the implications of sustainable prosperity at the level of households and firms; and we explore sector-level and macro-economic implications of different pathways to prosperity. We are paying particular attention to the pragmatic steps that need to be taken by enterprise, government and civil society in order to achieve a sustainable prosperity.
