The Oxford Martin Programme on the
Future of Development
The Oxford Martin Programme on the Future of Development aims to create more and better economic opportunities for all in a changing world.
It focuses on low- and middle-income countries and works towards more equitable and well-functioning labour markets, fostering entrepreneurship and technology for small- and medium-sized enterprises, and building human capital for a just green energy transition.
It conducts rigorous research, creating evidence-based solutions and tools for decision makers, providing platforms for new ideas, and sharing insights through events and publications.
The programme is directed by Professor Ian Goldin and Dr Christian Meyer. This research programme has been made possible thanks to a generous donation from Allan & Gill Gray Philanthropies.
