Course content

The contemporary world is characterised by critical global challenges and interdependencies. Economic and human development challenges remain pervasive across large parts of the world. Environmental challenges such as climate change are increasingly shaping world politics. Development and environmental challenges interact in complex ways to shape patterns of conflict and insecurity.

The MA in International Development, Environment and Conflict explores the interconnections between these critical global agendas and the ways in which they play out around the world. Students on this programme will develop critical insights into how these contemporary challenges and governance responses are reshaping the contours of world politics.
