International development cooperation is a dynamic sector that must respond adequately to a changing global scenario. Therefore, at CIDEAL, we work on different lines of research on cutting-edge topics connected to the international development agenda.

The conjunction between the actions carried out in the field and the generation of knowledge allows CIDEAL to equip itself with tools that make it possible to address development issues from an integral perspective.

Ensuing these principles, some of our main lines of research currently revolve around the following areas of interest:

  • Management of development cooperation programs and projects.
  • Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA).
  • Management for development results (GoRD).
  • Public-Private Partnerships for Development (APPD).
  • Technology and innovation for development.
  • European Union development cooperation policy.
  • South-South and Triangular Cooperation.
  • Business and human rights.

To disseminate the research results, CIDEAL has its own publishing house, with more than 100 publications.
