The tradition of research and teaching on development at Cambridge goes back at least to the 1930s, when some of those who were later to be the founding fathers in the field studied here as postgraduate students under John Maynard Keynes.

Since then research and teaching in the subject have taken place across many faculties and departments, including Economics, Social and Political Sciences, Social Anthropology, Geography, Land Economy, the Judge Business School, and the Centres of African, South Asia and Latin American Studies.

The Centre's staff and students are involved in research across a wide range of disciplines, including history, sociology, politics, anthropology, economics, and cultural studies (including literature and the visual arts).
