Global development

Grounded in The Open University’s values of inclusivity, innovation and responsiveness, global development is a core research area in our Faculty. Key in this endeavour is the Centre for the Study of Global Development (CSGD), which is guided by the sustainable development goals that relate to poverty, health, wellbeing, education, decent jobs, and employment, while also critiquing globalised development agendas and exploring and showcasing localised conceptualisations of and approaches to development. The CSGD works with scholars from different disciplinary and geographic backgrounds to better understand development problems and find answers.  



The Carers Research Group

The Carers Research Group was established in light of the growth in recognition of carers, their needs and the importance of supporting them. The group's interdisciplinary members collaborate on a wide range of carer-related scholarship and research projects, publications and resources.
