Welcome back

By Neil McCulloch

Welcome back to the Globalisation and Development blog. I’m Neil McCulloch, leader of the Globalisation Team at the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) in the UK.

This blog is the ideal forum to discuss and share latest ideas and arguments about globalisation research. Here we will be commenting on the latest news, highlighting up-coming events, reporting back from field trips, and of course telling you what we think are the most exciting pieces of research emerging on globalisation.

As I said, this is a forum for discussion and debate, so please join in – we want to stimulate a conversation about one of the crucial challenges of our time.

IDS is one of Europe’s largest research institutes on development and has been researching the effects of globalisation on development for decades.
