This report covers the first year of our new three year strategy with its focus on seven critical areas of research. We now have active research ongoing in 16 countries around the world, with over 25 projects linking research to policy and practice change. In Sudan, Ethiopia, Uganda, and Afghanistan, our research has had a direct impact on government and independent aid programming, and globally our work with a number of leading NGOs and more generally in promoting notions of professionalism and evidence-driven aid are having impact.

The report that follows is organized around the seven main research programs ongoing at the Center and goes on to describe our educational work with graduate students at Tufts and other universities in the Boston area, plus listing all our publications.
