DSA 'In Focus'!
The DSA has produced a brochure that explains briefly what we are, what our Key Achievements have been and our Theory of Change, along with our current activities and future aspirations.
We encourage all institutional members (and potential institutional members!) to download either the brochure or the poster and display it prominently on your departmental noticeboards!
Alternatively, if you would like hard copies of the brochure, please contact us

New Ideas Initiative
In 2012 the DSA provided funds for seven New Ideas grants, funded by DFID. The idea behind this initiative was to provide seed funding for those ideas that were forming in the minds of individuals or collaborations, but that did not have the resources to take the research to the next level. We had 78 proposals and would have liked to fund more, as there were so many interesting New Ideas out there.
The reports from each grant can be found on the New Ideas webpage
