This section of the website contains information from the ESRC funded Wellbeing in Developing Countries Research Group from 2002 to 2008 and is no longer updated. For more recent information see the new website.

The objective of WeD is to develop a conceptual and methodological approach for understanding the social and cultural construction of wellbeing in developing countries. An international, interdisciplinary team draws together perspectives from across the social sciences in a major programme of comparative research, focused on six communities in each of four countries: Ethiopia, Thailand, Peru and Bangladesh. The research raises fundamental questions both for the academic study of development, and for the policy community.

Further details of how the research questions are addressed see Research Statement and Methods Toolbox.

For a wider perspective see the proceedings of the WeD International Conference 28-30 June 2007.
