last modified Jun 13, 2016 12:13 PM

In July 2016 CDS researchers will launch an annual collaborative research workshop in Kigali, Rwanda, with colleagues from the University of Rwanda. Covering topics from Gender to Law in Development, the workshop will also be open to up to 50 students from the University of Rwanda. This initiative is funded by the Gatsby Foundation, and has developed from Jane Lichtenstein’s long-standing links with Rwanda and the work there supported by the Gatsby Foundation. Dr Shailaja Fennell, Jolly Dusabe (Cambridge Rwanda scholar), Christine van Hooft, Dr Sophie Chapman and Jane Lichtenstein will make up the team from CDS.

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.

Message from the director: You will be pleased to know that we have moved up from 8 in 2015 to 6 this year in the QS world ranking for Development Studies. This is a remarkable result and a great tribute to the tremendous efforts of the whole team of teachers and administrators. It's a fantastic result! Professor Peter Nolan

Congratulations to PhD student Nungari Mwangi who was awarded the 2016 Andrew E Rice Award from the Society for International development!
