Syllabus:

This course provides an in-depth introduction to the multi-disciplinary field of international development. It introduces students to key concepts and debates in international development, the history of development policies and practices, and the range of multilateral, bilateral and non-governmental organizations that are currently engaged in the field of development. Through case-studies, the course looks at major development issues, such as governance and security, health, education, environmental and natural resource management, and legal reform. Particular attention is paid to the current international development framework of Sustainable Development Goals and the primary goal of eradicating global poverty. In all of these ways, the course encourages students to think critically about what development is, about how and by whom it is carried out and, most importantly of all, about what it can achieve.
