Within LSE, the Department of International Development (ID) is the nerve centre of intellectual cross-fertilization on developing regions, societies, and dynamic processes of development. We draw together ideas from across the disciplines and across the world to develop novel approaches to global challenges. This generates transgressive ideas crucial to analysing the problems, structures, and opportunities that affect most of the world’s countries and people, and to understanding why some societies progress while others decompose. We then feed these insights back into the disciplines through contributions that push out their own frontiers and also strengthen the theoretical base of development studies.
