Syllabus:

This course provides an in-depth introduction to the multi-disciplinary field of development studies. It introduces students to key debates in development theory, to the history of development policy and practice, and to the range of multilateral, bilateral and NGO organizations that are currently engaged in the development enterprise. Through a series of empirically-rich case-studies, drawn from across the developing and newly-industrialized worlds, the course also looks at the main sectors in which development organizations engage, including: governance and security, health, education, environmental and natural resource management, and legal reform. Throughout, particular attention is paid to the effects of development policy and practice upon the lives of ordinary people, and especially upon the lives of the more than 1 billion people who currently live `below the poverty line. In all of these ways, the course encourages students to think critically about what development is, about how it is carried out and, most importantly of all, about what it can achieve.
