This course offers students an opportunity to develop methodological and practical skills in the context of study tour to Vietnam for a period of up to three weeks. Vietnam is one of the most interesting case study countries for scholars of international development in Southeast Asia. During the course, students will gain an enhanced understanding of Vietnam's aid architecture and the specific contextual challenges of national and localised development. The study tour is built around a series of case studies, in which students meet development professionals from a range of government and non-government organisations, and visit organisations managing real development projects. Students will apply their theoretical knowledge to evaluate these case study projects in relation to core development priorities and best practice methods.
