Development and Rights

'Development' has come to represent the political relationship between rich and poor countries following the end of colonialism. This programme offers a critical approach to development through the lens of anthropology. It explores the historical role of anthropological engagement in development, and provides the opportunity to rethink concepts, policies and practices underwriting global inequality. Offering a critical exploration of the concept of rights (human, indigenous, or gender, for example) and how it is mobilised to make various kinds of claims, the degree presents diverse perspectives on how we might address global inequality. The Masters includes half a day a week spent on a placement with a London-based development-related organisation, which you will negotiate. This is an ideal way to build work experience and for critical reflection on some of the issues raised in the classroom.
