Our Partners

The Warwick Interdisciplinary Research Centre for International Development is focused on championing a truly collaborative approach between researchers, research users and research beneficiaries worldwide. 

This requires that our researchers take the time needed in getting to know potential collaborators, seeking common interests and complimentary expertise that so that partnerships will be mutually beneficial and productive. By building relationships overtime, we will get to know the intellectual passions and research strengths of our individual and institution partners.  

There are world class research institutions with excellent reputations and impact in their field in all parts of the world with whom we will collaborate to build our research capacity and theirs.  

Through our interdisciplinary research projects and impact work we will prioritise inclusive and diverse working collaborations both between Warwick colleagues and with our partners globally.
