International aid enters every debate about international governance, including climate change, security, debt, fairer international trade, corruption and poverty reduction. This programme provides a clear understanding of current issues and methods of analysis in aid management, as well as practical skills in aid management, against a background of analysis of the politics and economics of development.
The programme includes subjects such as the reform of aid management, financial management and aid, conditionality, evaluating aid, the role of NGOs and the future of aid. This specialist pathway will be of particular interest to aid managers from recipient countries and donor agencies, as well as to graduates seeking to work for donor agencies, NGOs or recipient countries.
