Engaged excellence is IDS’ distinctive approach to constructing and sharing knowledge, and to teaching and mutual learning for development.


Our research is focused around what we believe are the three defining challenges of our era – reducing inequalities, accelerating sustainability and building inclusive, secure societies.

In line with our engaged excellence approach, we are committed to working collaboratively with an international network of partners in a cross-disciplinary way to construct and share knowledge to address these challenges locally and globally.
