Bath Social & Development Research Ltd

Bath Social & Development Research is a non profit company providing research, training, advisory and consultancy services contributing to policies and practices promoting sustainable local, national and global development, well-being and social justice. The company was set up at the initiative of staff from the Centre for Development Studies (CDS) at the University Bath, and aims to conduct activities that complement and enhance its work. This includes adapting and mainstreaming research conducted by CDS and its members, as well as broadening employment and career opportunities for CDS staff, former staff and alumni of the University. To date Bath SDR has defined its remit more narrowly as being to promote better standards of qualitative and mixed methods impact evaluation of public and private investments with explicit social and development goals. The launchpad for this was the development by CDS of the QuIP (Qualitative Impact Protocol).
