About CAMSED. The Cambridge Society for Social and Economic Development (CAMSED) seeks to “promote and constitute a space for the academic discussion of research and policies related to social and economic development, from a multidisciplinary perspective”. To this end, the Society provides a forum for students and academics at the University of Cambridge and beyond for critical evaluation and dissemination of research and ideas in this field. It organises regular seminars related to the field of Development Studies and seeks to collaborate with similarly-motivated societies and individuals around the world. In recent years, we have held a seminar series on the Global Political Economy of Development and on the Future of Neoliberal Society.
