We are very pleased to announce that a new online alumni platform is available on the Development Studies website. Created by Sebastian Manhart and Will Fairbairn, who completed the MPhil programme here at the Centre in 2015, by joining you will be connected to over 300 alumni from over 60 different countries. This is great way to share news, relevant events and job listings. 

Should you wish to join, be you student or staff, please go to the alumni tab above and click the hyperlink to sign up. 

"It has been almost two years since the murder of Giulio Regeni in Cairo. As we approach this anniversary, we are no nearer to knowing the truth of what happened to this promising post-graduate, tortured and killed while pursuing wholly legitimate academic research... It has been especially troubling to note that, in the absence of apparent progress in investigations into Giulio’s death, attention has been turned to his doctoral supervisor, Dr Maha Abdelrahman – an honourable and distinguished scholar..." Stephen J Toope, Vice-Chancellor. To read the message in full, please go to our News page. The message can also be found on the University of Cambridge homepage.

We are delighted and proud to see that the Centre has gone from no.8 (2015) to no.6 (2016) to no.4 (2017) in the field of Development Studies in the QS Survey. This would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work from everyone within the Centre.
