GDSJ works on a range of vitally important issues across political, development and social geography and has interdisciplinary reach in its connections to international relations, cyber security, development studies, anthropology, sociology, disaster studies, health and gerontology. We have also built interdisciplinary links across RHUL with the Information Security Group (ISG), Centre for Research into Sustainability (CRIS), the Centre for the GeoHumanities, the department of Health Studies, and The ICT4D Collective.
GDSJ’s 20 academic researchers and associate members, and 25+ PhD students are committed to research both in and across the Global North and Global South including the UK and Overseas Territories, the Arctic and Antarctica, Sub-Saharan Africa, South and Southeast Asia, Latin America, and Australasia.
GDSJ organises a range of events including research theme and praxis workshops, ‘brown bag’ lunches and seminars. The group runs the Masters programmes: the MSc Global Futures: Justice, Development and Sustainability; the MSc Global Futures: Geopolitics and Security; the MSc Practising Sustainable Development, and the MRes in Geopolitics, Development, Security and Justice
