King Center on Global Development


The King Center on Global Development at Stanford University aims to improve policies that will make people's lives better by catalyzing Stanford's distinctive strengths in global poverty and development research. Faculty and students produce policy-relevant research and engage thought leaders to create tangible impact—working collaboratively and purposefully to turn path-breaking research into real-world results. 

The King Center on Global Development is a joint venture between the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR) and the Stanford Institute for Innovation in Developing Economies, known as Stanford Seed. By encouraging new initiatives and collaboration across the university, the King Center strives to stimulate research to help alleviate global poverty.
