Course content

The major debates engaged in by Development Studies, focused on growth vs inequality, efficiency vs democracy, state vs market led development and modernity vs tradition. The practice of development was also framed within these debates and was institutionalised through the Bretton Woods System, the various UN institutions, governmental and non-governmental policies.

This programme will introduce you to these debates and questions. Theoretical work and empirical work are not separate exercises. Practical problems stimulate theory construction, and theories inform the ways in which we handle substantive issues. Theory that lacks bearing on practice is irrelevant. Action that lacks theoretical clarity and coherence is confused and ineffective.
