Global Politics of Development
A study of the politics of global development, exploring both key ways of thinking about and approaching contemporary development issues and case studies. Focuses on post-structural theoretical approaches to development and exploration of the relationships between concepts of development and ideas and practices of globalisation, post-colonialism, feminisms, intervention, post-development, international political economy and international organisations. The course aims to develop students’ understandings of post-structural theory, as well as use this broad theoretical approach to engage with key debates in critical development studies and to examine current development issues and case studies.
