The Ford Family Program in Human Development Studies and Solidarity promotes the interdisciplinary study of international human development, a central focus of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies, with an innovative mix of research, teaching, and community engagement.

We work with students, scholars, and communities around the world facing challenges to authentic human development and investigate the conditions that limit opportunities to flourish with dignity.

We study economic growth and development, politics, public policy, health, and human rights.

We are committed to building a transnational and interdisciplinary alliance of scholars, students, public servants, and conscientious citizens to address the critical challenges confronted by those
living in extreme poverty.
