Welcome to the Randall L. and Deborah F. Tobias Center for Innovation in International Development

Determining how best to assist countries in need while fostering their self-sufficiency engages policymakers, non-governmental organizations, and corporations alike. It’s a challenge at the heart of The Tobias Center for Innovation in International Development at Indiana University’s School of Global and International Studies. The center’s scholars spearhead research into the practices that make for the most effective development, and the best ways to measure it. They identify innovative approaches to international assistance, and specialize in the topic of foreign aid as it affects the environment and public health. A laboratory for international research, the Tobias Center is also a training ground for the next generation of leaders in the field of development assistance.
