Course content

The programme is grounded in the recognition that development is inherently international, and inherently political: a concept that cannot be separated from core questions of global governance, international conflict, attempts at conflict resolution, and post-conflict reconstruction, or from issues of human development and human security. The programme ensures that students understand the history of international development from postwar modernization to the Millennium Development Goals, with particular emphasis on building a conception of the impact of global governance on political and economic processes in the developing world.
