Understanding Global   
Development Challenges

Mission

The Italian Center for International Development (ICID), hosted by CEIS University of Rome Tor Vergata, is an entity that involves Centers and Departments of three Rome based public universities (CEIS of University of Rome Tor Vergata, Department of Economics of Roma Tre University and Department of Social Sciences and Economics of Sapienza University of Rome), also connecting together the economic departments of other Italian universities and national and international institutions. The Centre’s mission is to promote a better understanding of development challenges in an increasingly globalized world, through an inter-disciplinary approach.

To this end, the mandate of ICID has been designed along the following 4 core pillars:

  • Promoting and implementing high-level and policy-relevant research across the wide spectrum of development areas.
     
  • Building and facilitating an inter-disciplinary network of experts in the development arena, connecting academia and researchers as well as practitioners in the development field, with a view to increasing the impact of the research community on policy making and development cooperation.
     
  • Creating training opportunities for young researchers in the development field, through PhD and Master courses, seminar and workshop series, student exchanges (involving institutions from both industrialized and less-industrialized countries), as well as research mentoring.
     
  • Dissemination

ICID’s design and composition provide it with a unique capacity for state-of-the-art research addressing the many interconnected development issues facing today’s globalized world. The ownership and reach of ICID research are further strengthened through active research partnerships with government counterparts, workers’ and employers’ organizations, international development organizations, private financial institutions, private sector firms, as well as regional and international development banks.
