Development processes, actors and policies

Research Group

Lifecycle:1 Jan 2013  →  Today
Organisation profile:In today's globalised world, we conceive of development as a multi-level and multi-actor process. Development is a patchy process, pushed and pulled in different directions and unfolding in different time scales. Development policies are both part of this process and impacting on it. IOB studies the patchwork of actors and dynamics entangled in political processes in order to identify time and place bound opportunities for change towards a more just and sustainable development.
