The network

The Centre for New Economies of Development brings together anthropologists from the Universities of Edinburgh, SOAS and Sussex who share an interest in the interface between business and development

We hope to build a network of researchers interested in engaging critically with the Bottom of the Pyramid approach to business-led development among the world’s poorest. Please contact us and submit a brief biography and summary of your research interests if you would like to join the network.
