The Center's scope of work has expanded in 2009-10 while staying focused on the subject matter of marginal communities and crisis. We now have active research ongoing in 14 countries around the world, with some thirty projects linking research to policy and practice change. In Sudan, Ethiopia, Uganda, and Afghanistan, our research has had a direct impact on government and independent aid programming, and globally our work with a number of leading NGOs and more generally in promoting notions of professionalism and evidence-driven aid are having impact.
