Center for the Study of Development Strategies

The Center for the Study of Development Strategies (CSDS) provides a forum at Columbia to support rigorous field based research on major questions in the political economy of development. Research at the center focuses on democracy and governance, peacebuilding, and aid effectiveness. The center is supported by the Earth Institute, ISERP, and the Political Science department at Columbia.

CSDS researchers are currently involved in a project together with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and CEDIL (Centre of Excellence for Development Impact and Learning) to implement Bayesian mixed methods approaches developed to assess the impacts of development interventions across fields.
