Drawing on Keele's long-standing expertise in international relations, sustainability, the environment, conflict, security and post-conflict reconstruction, the programme explores the most pressing contemporary challenges including global inequality, environmental change, reconstruction and development after conflict as well as the global political problems that shape all issues of global inequality. Our MSc differs from other programmes in the UK and internationally because of its focus on the environmental and security aspects of international development. It provides a distinctive focus on the connections between development and global environmental change and challenges; as well as the connections between development, conflict and security transnationally and in different areas of the world.
