The Glasgow Centre for International Development is a pan-University of Glasgow network that supports and showcases our international development activity. We are a home to over 400 research and teaching staff, plus additional post graduate students and professional staff members. Our goal is to create an interdisciplinary, collaborative and supportive environment for our staff and students working with collaborators in low and middle income countries that will enable us to achieve our aims:

Key Aims

  • To promote capacity building and cultural exchange between low income countries and Scotland
