Course content

MSc International Development: Poverty, Conflict and Reconstruction examines contemporary and established analytical and conceptual frameworks relating to poverty, conflict analysis and the reconstruction of conflict and disaster-affected societies.

The impoverishment of more than 1.4 billion people, plus growing levels of inequality, presents the world with its greatest moral challenge. This course is designed to help you understand and tackle the problems of poverty and inequality in a critical and constructive way.

You will learn about the different conceptualisations and characteristics of poverty and inequality through high-level academic training from leading academics, in a vibrant and stimulating environment.

The course looks at policies and practices, by which individuals, communities and organisations seek to reduce poverty, understand conflict and initiate humanitarian interventions.

It is therefore ideal if you'd like to learn more about poverty and conflict, are intrigued by the reconstruction of conflict- and disaster-affected societies, and are interested in the policies and practices used to reduce poverty.
