Course content

The MA in Development and Human Rights examines the comparatively new interface between Human Rights and International Development.

This MA is a multi-disciplinary programme combining insights from the fields of development studies, politics, political theory and international law. It examines some of the key issues confronting twenty-first century global societies through a dynamic programme that combines theoretical and applied perspectives and is taught by a team of leading academics in their fields.

Students will be encouraged to apply legal theory, social and political theory and research tools in analysing and understanding development and human rights, as well as being taught key historical and policy dimensions and concepts.
