We have rich experience in research that achieves important social impacts and is transformative for participants, communities, practitioners, policymakers, students and a range of other "publics".

Core members of the cluster lead the Participation Lab, an innovative, interdisciplinary initiative which co-produces knowledge with communities, policymakers and practitioners at local, national and global scales.

The cluster is led by Professor Ruth Evans and is part of the Global Development Research Division. You can find out more about our work on the Global Development research blog.
