Course content

This MA is ideal for those considering employment in the field of humanitarian assistance and post-conflict reconstruction. It is also relevant to practitioners wishing to study the politics of aid. The programme builds on critical policy research and consultancy that has been completed for a wide range of international organisations.

It addresses the increasing overlap between ‘development’ and ‘security’ and explores the significance of globalisation for the emergence of internal, regionalised and networked forms of conflict and instability.

This analysis will broaden your understanding of the present crisis in global security as you go on to study the recent and current responses in humanitarian, developmental and security terms, particularly the links between aid and politics.
