Months of entry
This programme is designed for a wide range of people involved in conceptualising or administering policies for a sustainable and substantial level of development in the world's poorer countries. It is especially suitable for those already involved in planning development strategies, those currently working for non-governmental organisations in the development field or anyone planning for a career in development.
The programme combines an intellectual and academic approach with policy-oriented and empirical studies of development, addressing three interrelated but separate facets of the development process:
- analysing what development means;
- studying the processes of planning (external aid, regional disparities, environmental factors, poverty and industrialisation);
- examining how development policies may be delivered and administered, analysing the importance of effective political and bureaucratic structures, and evaluating the contributions of NGOs and other external bodies.
