The postgraduate International Development program at La Trobe University aims to provide you with a space to think through some of the critical issues relating to development theory and practice. We are not interested in focusing on theory at the expense of practice, or being naive about what the aid and development industry can achieve. Rather, our intention is to be critically reflective about development and by conversation, logic, analysis, practice and research, think through some of the key contemporary issues that our planet faces.
The development field needs thoughtful and reflexive practitioners. It needs people to ask the hard questions and to take risks in proposing alternative pathways. It needs people to resist inappropriate bureaucratisation and standardisation. And it needs people who are committed to social change. We hope in a small way to be part of the movement for a more progressive and engaged development practice that values genuine participation, local knowledge, and learning.
