This programme explores some of the world’s most pressing development challenges, from poverty and inequality, to migration, conflict and climate change. This programme combines a thorough grounding in the theory and practice of international development with core disciplinary training in politics, power and political economy. You will examine contested debates on democracy and development, the role of patronage in development, and the politics of social exclusion. You will apply political theories to a variety of examples of development and change from across the world, and critically examine different forms of development assistance. The programme uses real-world puzzles to bring to life the complex challenges of doing development in practice. It includes a specially designed Working in Development module, which will provide hands-on experience of common tools used in development projects and programmes. During that module, you will have the opportunity to participate in a study visit to a low- or middle-income country, allowing you to meet and learn from a range of actors working in a development context.
