Post-colonial Politics (Specialist)

The programme explores the assumptions, theories and practices that have defined traditional studies of relations between developed and underdeveloped states, and the alternative conceptualisation provided by a postcolonial perspective on international politics. It traces the continuing impact of colonialism on the contemporary world, examines in depth how colonial practices work, and critically assesses possibilities for change.
