Trinity International Development Initiative
Supporting Irelandís engagement with the developing world
There is growing focus in TCD concentrating research and teaching on issues related to international development. This is motivated not only by the potential for making a contribution to poverty reduction, and to sustainable human development worldwide, but also by the intellectual challenge of understanding the processes that are involved.
Trinity International Development Initiative's (TIDI) task is to manage and promote TCD’s expanded engagement with research and teaching on subjects related to international development. TIDI has the aim of making possible: a substantial increase in the quality and quantity of research on international development across a wide range of disciplines; a substantial increase in the number and enthusiasm of students at all levels and from both (the global) North and South, to learn and undertake research about international development issues; a deepening and increased number of teaching and research partnerships between Trinity and universities and other institutions in low- and middle-income countries; increased understanding by the public, government and other stakeholders of global development issues and the existing state of knowledge.
