Research Consortium on Educational Outcomes and Poverty (RECOUP)

Two girls in the street.

Edinburgh is a member of the Research Consortium on Educational Outcomes and Poverty (RECOUP), a research partnership of seven institutions in the UK, Africa and South Asia funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID).

Its core objective is to study the links between education and poverty, and to identify the policies needed to ensure that educational outcomes benefit the disadvantaged.

The partnership performs research in Ghana, Kenya, India, and Pakistan.

Leading social scientists from Edinburgh are playing a full part in the pathbreaking research on critical development issues that RECOUP is carrying out, and we are making valuable contributions to new thinking in educational policy-making in the Global South.
