    Goals / Remit

    The Overseas Development Institute (ODI) is a leading independent think tank on international development and humanitarian issues.

    Our mission is to inspire and inform policy and practice which lead to the reduction of poverty, the alleviation of suffering and the achievement of sustainable livelihoods in developing countries.

    We do this by locking together high quality applied research, practical policy advice, and policy-focused dissemination and debate.

    We work with partners in the public and private sectors, in both developing and developed countries.

    Main EU files targeted

    ODI engages with the EU institutions on a variety of topics and through numerous channels. We produce research reports, discussion papers, briefings and opinion pieces; we convene events attended by EU staff or exclusively for EU staff; we prepare submissions during consultations; we apply for funding from EU institutions; and we actively engage with EU staff to share the findings of our research to contribute to policy change.

    Complementary Information

    ODI’s research covers a wide spectrum of topics and sectors, most of which would be of interest to EU members and staff. The 4 members of ODI’s EU development programme focusses exclusively on topics relating to the EU, but many other experts contribute to their research, or produce additional pieces of research in their field of expertise that relate to the work of EU staff indirectly or directly. ODI occasionally produces research commissioned by EU institutions.
