QDMRC - publisher of the International Journal of Development and Policy Studies - is a social science research-based organisation that works principally on gender, children and social policy research. The organisation currently co-ordinates gender research in all Nigerian higher institutions of learning, in addition to serving as the African Regional headquarters of the Pan-African Gender and Peace Research Group. The research group meets quarterly to review research on topical areas, in addition to considering further researchable areas.
Membership of the research group is drawn among prolific academics and is open to interested academics with research interest in gender, peace, development and social policy. Applicants must be scholars of African descent with a track record of research and publications.
