Development and Security

This innovative programme explores the link and tensions between development and security concerns in theory and practice. Specifically, it builds on the unique combination of expertise and experience in the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies to: + examine the nature of violent conflict in the world today and the international community's response to it; + locate this analysis in a comprehensive theoretical understanding of wider development and security studies, debates and controversies, particularly in relation to evolving patterns of global governance; + explore these issues and dilemmas through contemporary, empirical case studies

Course modules

Students on this programme will take a combination of mandatory and optional taught units within the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies. Each is delivered within one of two 12-week teaching blocks and assessed by an essay (or equivalent form of written submission). This is followed in the summer term by a dissertation.
