International Challenges

We have conducted projects in developing countries and provided evidence on challenges such as poverty, educational inequalities, access to school education and the exclusion of girls. We are building networks and partnerships in the organisation with LMICTs to develop robust evidence and support active groups through building their research capacity. We have strong links with South America, Southern Africa and South Asia.
