- Description -
Our programme provides you with high-quality post-graduate teaching and research training in the analysis of emerging economies based at King’s International Development Institute. It offers a distinctive approach to the study of development by focusing on rising economic powers and a cluster of questions surrounding their emergence as key players in global politics and the economy. It also draws on social scientific expertise located across other departments in the Faculties of Social Sciences & Public Policy and Arts & Humanities.
Focuses include reviewing economic development theory to ask whether these countries offer a new model or models of development, looking at strategies that emerging economies have adopted to promote development, how inclusive and sustainable or enduring these new strategies are, how emerging markets solve difficult problems of promoting growth over the longer term, including development and diffusion of technology, managing trade and financial flows, balancing the role of the state and the market, and dealing with problems of institutional underdevelopment and weak systems of law and accountability.
