Professor Chris Roche

Chris Roche is Professor of Development Practice at La Trobe University where he is also the Director of the Institute for Human Security and Social Change.

He is also Deputy Director (Impact) of the Developmental Leadership Program, an international research program which explores how leadership, power and political processes drive or block successful development, and co-led the program’s work on Gender and Politics in Practice.

Prior to joining La Trobe in 2012, Professor Roche worked for over 25 years for international non-government organisations as a project manager, evaluator, policy researcher and director.

Chris is particularly interested in understanding the practice of social change processes and how those involved might be more effectively supported.
