Students apply a political lens to understanding and addressing the challenges of global development. They learn how development is affected by politics at all levels, from the political economy of international assistance, to domestic politics and local power dynamics. They explore the implications of politics for poverty, conflict and inequality through a range of case studies and practical exercises. This programme combines a thorough grounding in the theory and practice of international development with core disciplinary training in politics, power and political economy. You will examine contested debates on democracy and development, the role of patronage in development, and the politics of social exclusion. You will apply political theories to a variety of examples of development and change from across the world, and critically examine different forms of development assistance.
