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 graduate students under John Maynard Keynes.
Since then research and teaching in the subject has 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).
Cambridge owes its world-leading excellence in research and teaching to the generosity of its supporters. Our history is synonymous with a history of far-sighted benefaction, and the same is as true today as it has ever been.
