Coady International Institute contributes to the advancement of knowledge in the field of development by documenting its practice and experience, as well as that of its partners.


Huge congratulations are due to our own Yogesh Ghore and Monica Lent from the Gerald Schwartz School of Business. They have just won the Outstanding Paper Award through the 2017 Social Enterprise Journal Literati Awards for their paper “Contextualizing a social enterprise process in an emerging market”.
