Our in depth strength in specific research disciplines is the foundation for “connected research” that integrates the natural and social sciences across disciplines.
Our distinctive approach combines critical social science with natural sciences, linking development with environment and sustainability, which we define in the widest sense to include political, economic, legal and social challenges. We address core-topics that include: sustainability, environmental change and justice; land, labour and livelihoods in a globalised world; peace, conflict and security; health and equality; technology and innovation; and poverty, civil society, social movements and the state.
