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.
