Centre for New Economies of Development

The Centre for New Economies of Development is a UK-based collaboration between anthropologists at the Universities of Edinburgh, Sussex and Oxford.

Through public engagement and academic research the Centre seeks to engage with the private sector actors – global corporations, entrepreneurs, investment and hedge funds – that are shaping the political economy and material politics of international development.

With a commitment to ethnographic field based studies the Centre aims to critically examine the implications of market-centred paradigms for development and raise new questions about responsibility, accountability,
entitlement and sustainability.
