The core module aims to familiarise you with the key concepts and theories and with the changing roles of international development organisations and states in promoting international development.

The purpose of this course is to give those working in the area of poverty reduction and development in developing and transitional countries, or those wishing to work in such areas, a firmer grounding in understanding poverty and inequality, promoting poverty reduction and analysing the performance of major poverty reducing programmes and policies.
