Alumni Network

UNRISD Alumni is a network that aims to maintain connections with - and between - current and former collaborating researchers, board members, staff and interns of the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development. Our alumni may have worked with UNRISD on a research project, written a paper or chapter in an UNRISD publication, coordinated a project from the field, spoken at one of our events, served on the Board, or worked as a staff member or intern at our offices in Geneva: UNRISD recognizes that these contributions, which span five decades of research on social development, have formed the basis for the important work the Institute does and must continue to do. UNRISD’s alumni are one of its greatest assets.

Through this network we celebrate the important contributions of our alumni and promote collaboration and networking. We seek, through the network, to amplify the contributions of those working to ensure that development praxis is inclusive, sustainable and places the social at the heart of policy making.

Benefits of joining UNRISD Alumni


The network enables researchers, activists and policy makers working on similar subjects to forge new connections. It also provides opportunities to rekindle earlier collaborations and share professional work, research ideas, and job and funding opportunities.

Via the UNRISD Alumni Linked In group, the Institute can share its current research work and publications, and keep members up-to-date with the latest developments. Together, members can inform and contribute to shaping future UNRISD research, activities and publications, as well as guide new and innovative thinking on the key issues shaping contemporary global development.
