GDS - through the creation of its graduate research affiliate program - is interested in creating an inter-disciplinary academic space for graduate students interested in critical development studies. Becoming a graduate research associate of GDS means you will be invited to all GDS activities. Affiliation to the Department will also give you the opportunity to present your research, to contribute to the Department's working paper series, to build networks with researchers who share your interests, and to participate in the organization of graduate student workshops on topics of concern to the Department's community of graduate students.
