This MSc in Environment and Development aims to investigate, question and explore alternatives to the prevailing tensions and interdependencies between development and socio-ecological systems. It will consider the lived experiences of development and socio-ecological change, paying attention to different periods and multiple outcomes. You will study the many problems resulting from the narrow search for economic growth which ignores wider socio-ecological requirements and responsibilities. The focus will be on exploring the fundamental connections between socio-economic demands and mounting environmental impacts and risks in both the Global North and the Global South. The programme provides an opportunity to review: tendencies to convert nature into resources and private property; the formulation and implementation of environmental regulation; the commitments and failures of the apparatus of the state; the interaction between socio-economic sectors, groups and communities; and the political reaction and alliances across different geographical scales, countries and locations.
