Anthropology and Development Management

This programme will help you to develop a good understanding of classical social theory and modern anthropological theory, with reference to a range of theoretical issues, including those of development and social change, and in relation to appropriate ethnography. You will gain an understanding of political economy approaches to the causes of development and non-development; the role of different kinds of authority, incentives and accountability mechanisms, and insight into best practice in designing state agencies, private firms and NGOs. You will explore theories about the emergence of the state, how institutional forces interact to drive processes of change in different kinds of society, and the ways in which these are illuminated by anthropology. Though the programme is not a course in applied anthropology, it will be invaluable if you are planning a career in development work. The programme also provides a good foundation for anthropological research on problems connected with development.
