International Development

This course offers a structured framework yet still allows a flexible approach to learning; the initial introductory sessions set the scene for a number of international development issues and themes, which are followed by blocks of study on globalisation, human security, and international development; the course recognises that international development environments and related debates constantly evolve; it captures this dynamism in its multi layered approach and it highlights the connections made between different disciplinary areas.
