Portrait of Elizabeth Stuart
Elizabeth's areas of interest include inequality, the political economy of national-level policy making, and multilateral processes including the Sustainable Development Goals.

Elizabeth is head of the Growth, Poverty and Inequality Programme and leads the Institute's work on the Sustainable Development Goals, with a focus on the 'leave no one behind' agenda. Her areas of interest include inequality in its widest sense as well as multilateral processes, and the political economy of national-level policy making. Before joining ODI, she was director of policy and research for Save the Children, a former head of Oxfam International’s Washington DC office, and was a national newspaper and radio journalist writing about business.
