MA Global Development and Political Economy of International Resources


Course Description

This programme examines political, economic, and socio-cultural transformations in the Global South and interrogates the dynamics, challenges and opportunities confronting its societies. It also allows you to specialise in issues surrounding resource scarcity and depletion, and the challenges faced by oil and mineral-rich developing countries.

You’ll learn about the experiences and viewpoints of people and nations of the Global South regarding development issues. You’ll review strategies, programmes and policies in development, including organisations and donors promoting development, and assess the progress made by different development actors towards key international development goals.

You’ll explore debates and controversies at the centre of contemporary development challenges and analyse both the theories and realities of development, to understand the different approaches, practices and discourses involved.
