Research

Development Geography examines patterns and situations of human well-being in developing societies, with a focus on an integrated understanding of the causes and consequences of inequality across time and space.

It is a theoretically informed and empirically rich form of  social science, in which researchers have long-term connections and commitments to groups and institutions in the countries where they conduct their research.  Members of the academic staff and research students in the School of Geography are engaged in major research projects and teaching about  the cultural, demographic, economic, environmental and political processes that shape people’s lives in contrasting situations and circumstances of 'development', particularly in the Asia-Pacific region.
