Professor David Hulme as new DSA President

It is with great pleasure that the Council can announce that the new President of the DSA is Professor David Hulme, Institute of Development Policy and Management, University of Manchester. As no nominations for President were received ahead of the AGM, the Council agreed to pursue individuals who had expressed interest rather than re-open the nomination process. We're pleased to say that David received unanimous support from Council members and so has been declared President for the term of office 2014 - 2017.
