Research Centre for Global Development (C4Globe)

The UCLan Research Centre for Global Development brings together researchers from all subject areas to develop robust and equitable research partnerships that will address major challenges to society.


Working with international partners and communities, we uphold the values of fairness, respect, care and honesty and are closely aligned to the United Nations UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. A key commitment of this agenda is to “leave no-one behind”, meaning that the needs of those most marginalised and disadvantaged will be prioritised.
