Abstract: The paper looks at some visible and invisible challenges to development studies-seen as comprising a policy-related field-in relation to the UK and the DSA and against the background of world economic turmoil. They include: a revaluation of the multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary nature of the subject, to retain its broad base; the need to work within a comparative framework, linking poor and rich countries and the importance of a value base for development research. A strong appeal is made for better efforts to educate a wider public, especially in collaboration with the Development Education Association. Copyright © 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
