International Development Research @ Cambridge


Drawing on years of interdisciplinary research and design led by Centre of Governance and Human Rights, Cambridge non-profit spinout Africa's Voices has gone live on radio reaching millions to analyze and respond to Kenyan and Somali citizens' questions and concerns. The findings and recommendations generated by the team from a rapid consultation with over 7,500 Somalis –  guided by co-founder Dr Sharath Srinivasan (POLIS) and Dr Luke Church (Computer Lab) – have been presented to 250+ colleagues in UN development agencies, NGOs donors and researchers focused on displacement-affected populations in the Horn and East Africa and on the specific context of Somalia
