 Brief description of your activity focus
A Berlin-based think tank conducting research, policy advice and capacity building on international security and socio-economic development

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
The ISDC provides evidence-based analysis and policy advice on the interactions of security, conflict, violence and
fragility with socio-economic development, growth, employment and poverty alleviation. We collect and analyse data,
publish reports, advise public and private stakeholders, and build networks and capacity. We are experts in economics,
political science, peace research and development studies. We are international, independent and non-partisan. We
are based in Berlin and collaborate with a broad range of partners in academia, policy making and practice.
While is increasingly being recognised that security and development are interdependent, we have significant gaps of
knowledge concerning how to strengthen either and what their relation is to each other. Our lack of knowledge
concerns the global, the national, the local and the individual levels. What are the costs of conflict? Does poverty
breed instability? How to maintain basic human needs in fragile environments? Which institutions build peace and/or
prosperity? Can we build peace – and change people’s attitudes to past or potential foes? The ISDC draws on data to
seek answers to these questions – and thereby to help design better policies.
The ISDC was set up in 2014 to connect the two themes security and development and their respective communities,
which often act in isolation from each other. The ISDC is a physical hub in a large virtual network of experts and
expertise involving researchers, policy makers, practitioners and journalists. While based in Berlin, the global
relevance of our work means we engage in research and advisory projects around the world.
