Development Studies

The economic development of nations and their subsequent rise out of poverty is perhaps the most challenging issue of the 21st Century.  Reflecting current concerns, we have built up a prominent and innovative development studies list spanning a range of social science disciplines.  We seek to publish the very best development-based research from around the world, emphasizing our commitment to development issues and maintaining the high calibre of our list.

Our monograph programme includes cutting-edge publications on development studies, development economics, poverty, international finance, trade, technology, impact assessment, health, agriculture and sustainability.
