The Development Research School is an international collaboration between Lund University, Uppsala University, Gothenburg University, and the University of Ghana. It is coordinated in Lund from the Department of Political Science and deals with sustainable development and poverty reduction in low-income countries, with a particular focus on aspects of governance, power, and inequality. Activities include doctoral courses as well as a Mentorship Programme, Research Seminars and Capacity-Building and Skills Training.

The school is open to PhD students from all universities with an interest in our themes, but priority will be given to doctoral students from our four partner institutions.
