DLP's research examines the political processes that drive or constrain development. 

It focuses especially on the role of developmental leaderships and coalitions in promoting or resisting institutional and policy reform to support sustainable growth, political stability and inclusive social development. It seeks to learn from diverse contexts in all regions of the world.

Our core research themes

  • Politically informed programming
