Since 2014, Development International e.V. has implemented research projects at the intersection of law, business, and sustainable development.
Our point of departure is to bring independent scientific scrutiny, clarity, and accuracy to bear on issues with an empirical deficit, thus enabling constructive discourse.
We also develop and implement evidence-based intervention strategies and solutions to achieve sustainable development outcomes, and we build capacity to transfer knowledge and competencies to other stakeholders in the process.
Our inter-disciplinary team combines legal, economic and public health competencies. The economic underpinning is insofar imperative in that we understand how the leading economic theory and modelling can be leveraged to the desired ends of sustainable development. Similarly, our command of legislative precedents and impending paradigms allow us to compare and contrast legislative models. Our public health experience helps us ground our population-based research in a rightsholder and ultimate beneficiary perspectives.
