15 Credits AUTUMN



Aims/Description: This module looks at key challenges and debates in international development, and asks students to reflect on how these are shaping, and being shaped by, contemporary processes of social, economic and political change within the Global South. It encourages students to think critically about the ways in which practitioners approach issues and define problems, and the theoretical viewpoints that inform their actions. The unit is taught through a combination of lectures and seminars: these structure students' learning, and provide an environment in which they can develop their skills in researching, presenting and debating arguments drawn from the academic literature on international development.

Restrictions on availability: Only available to students on TRPT107

Staff Contact: Dr Tom Goodfellow
