About Wageningen University and Research

Wageningen University & Research conducts global research on problems in three core areas: food, feed & bio-based production; natural resources & living environment; and society & well-being. Wageningen University & Research joins the forces of specialised research institutes and the university and is able to combine efforts of the various fields of natural and social sciences. Collaboration with other parties such as government, business and NGOs is indispensable in this.

Sociology of Development and Change at Wageningen University and Research
The Sociology of Development and Change (SDC) Group dovetails the domains of Rural Development Sociology, Disaster Studies and Anthropology of Law. The Group historically has a strong record on the anthropology and sociology of development, which has been broadened to include the fields of anthropology of law and disaster studies. The Group combines a critical approach to development issues and processes with an interest in crisis, governance, livelihood and resources, in rural as well as urban environments. It is interested in the nexus between local and global processes and the continuities and discontinuities between stability and crisis.
