LIDC coordinates and supports interdisciplinary research that aims to advance high-quality and inclusive education across the global North and South. In doing so, we draw on critical expertise of the UCL Institute of Education (IOE), one of LIDC’s founding members and a globally recognised centre for research and teaching in education and social science.
We work at the individual, household and community levels, and our research uses a range of tools and methods to forge solutions to this central development challenge. What’s more, LIDC’s work in this area closely aligns with our existing research on food as well as poverty and inequality.
As part of the UKRI GCRF Action against Stunting Hub, researchers will assess the cohort’s early learning environment, basic cognitive ability, and biologically-determined ability to respond to education in Indonesia, India, and Senegal.
