Organisation profile

King’s Department of International Development Institute (DID) focuses on middle income countries and 'emerging economies', to explore the sources of their success as well as understand the major social, political and economic development challenges they continue to face. The fast growing and changing societies in Asia, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East raise new questions about global influences, national development and promoting sustainable and equitable growth. DID is a multidisciplinary department encompassing the social, economic and political sciences. Research groups focus on questions of poverty and inclusive growth, social justice, and political economy and institutions.

The department has expertise in the SE Asia and Latin American regions, India and China, and hosts the African Leadership Centre (ALC). The ALC is a partnership between King's the University of Nairobi and is researching and developing innovative ways to support ‘home-grown’ talent through deepening practical policy and theoretical knowledge, and building development leadership capacities.
