Organisation profile

The fast-growing and changing societies of Asia, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East raise new questions about global influences, national development and the promotion of sustainable and equitable growth.

The Department of International Development (DID) at King’s explores the major social, political and economic development successes and challenges facing middle-income countries and ‘emerging economies’.

Bringing together social, economic and political sciences, our research focuses on questions of poverty and inclusive growth, social justice, and political economy and institutions. Our expertise lies in Southeast Asia, Latin America, India and China.

We also host the African Leadership Centre (ALC) – a partnership between King’s College London and the University of Nairobi. The ALC researches and develops innovative ways to support ‘home-grown’ talent through deepening practical policy and theoretical knowledge, and building development leadership capacities.

Our multi-disciplinary programmes and modules are taught by experts in their respective domains. We offer a range of undergraduate courses, including opportunities to study abroad, as well as research-led postgraduate programmes and PhD supervision.
