The Developing Areas Research Group (DARG) is one of the research/ study groups in the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers). The DARG membership is largely made up of academics, postgraduates and practitioners interested in ‘developing areas’. This term has tended to cover Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, but in recent years has been extended to cover the transitional societies of Eastern Europe and the ex-USSR. We also welcome and encourage research work within and on the “West” in relation to ‘development’ issues.
DARG provides an annual award to a postgraduate geography student to encourage and assist fieldwork in developing countries.It is aimed at those preparing for a PhD in topics related to development studies.
The award is £800, although smaller awards are sometimes made.
