ODID Distinguished Speaker Lectures

The Oxford Department of International Development (ODID) is the focus at Oxford for teaching and research on international development: the understanding of change and inequality in developing countries, and the interaction of these countries with the rest of the world. We are known for a critical and multi-disciplinary approach, translating social science theory into empirical understanding and providing rigorous evidence for change that can benefit ordinary people in a global context. The Department offers four taught masters courses, an MPhil in Development Studies and a DPhil in International Development. The ODID Distinguished Speaker series brings leading figures from the field of development studies to speak about current issues and challenges.
