Prospective Members

Membership is in the RAD open to all university departments, research centers, think tanks and foundations that deal with international development – regardless of academic discipline.

Academic Liaison

Member institutions are encouraged to assign one Academic Liaison officer to the RAD. The Academic Liaison maintains a working relationship with the RAD Secretariat, and serves as a bridge  between the RAD and his/her institution. Further, the Academic Liaison keeps his/her colleagues informed about relevant information on RAD events and opportunities, research trends, issues and resources, and ensures that researchers’ needs and concerns are conveyed to the relevant departments or units within the World Bank – the RAD’s principal interlocutor.

The Academic Liaison should be:

  • A member of an academic/research body
  • Committed to inclusiveness and have a broad intellectual perspective
  • In charge of, or highly involved in, organizing events for his or her research unit
  • Willing to enhance collaboration with the Bank on development research
  • Able to commit some time and effort required to act as Liaison
  • Proficient in English
