About us

The central purpose of the dpu is to strengthen the professional and institutional capacity of governments and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to deal with the wide range of issues that are emerging at all levels. The dpu's multi-disciplinary and multi-national staff offer specialised courses both in London and abroad for the staff of central government departments, local authorities, NGOs and the private sector. These courses are supported by international agencies as well as by national and provincial governments.
