Institute of Development Studies (IDS)
The Institute of Development Studies (IDS) is a leading global Institution for international development research, teaching and learning, and impact and communications, based at the University of Sussex.
Their vision is a world in which poverty does not exist, social justice prevails and sustainable economic growth is focused on improving human wellbeing.
Their research tackles the complex and persistent challenges of global poverty and injustice. They take a multidisciplinary approach and work with an international network of partners to develop research which they actively seek to see applied in development policy and practice.
Over more than 45 years, IDS research has helped to shape development thinking and practice, focussing on people-centred perspectives and taking an integrated approach to research, learning and communication.
