The Development Studies Association is the UK's learned society and professional body for academic teaching and research, policy and practice in the field of international development.
Membership is open to anybody with an interest in development studies. We currently have over 600 members (including students), made up of individuals and approximately 40 institutions, from the academic and NGO sectors. Most members are UK-based as this is where our Study Group meetings and association conferences take place, but all are welcome.
