About WDPN

The Westminster Development Policy Network (WDPN) brings together researchers from a wide range of disciplines working on development policy.

The Westminster Development Policy Network Virtual Seminars are jointly organised with Westminster International University in Tashkent (WIUT) and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI). We also host an annual Westminster Development Studies Symposium and regularly host special panel discussions with a variety of partner organisations.

For details of our next event coming up on the 22 June in the Regent Street Cinema (London): Insights from transition economies: China, Poland and Uzbekistan and our Research Roundtable – Chinese Economic Policy

All our events are open to everyone and free of charge. We welcome new members so please get in touch if you would like to join the network.
