In the area of international and development studies, anthropology and sociology are indispensable for the comparative study of global concerns from below, from the margins and across borders, with a focus on the role of non-State actors and social movements. The disciplinary programme aims to provide students with the analytical and methodological tools to explore the social and cultural systems that influence, and are influenced by, policy interventions, especially - but not exclusively - in the field of development. Other areas of interest include conflict and peace-building, location and migration, as well as identity politics.
The Master in Anthropology and Sociology of Development is a two-year programme that provides in-depth training in Anthropology and Sociology from an international perspective, including familiarization with at least one other discipline taught at the Institute (international economics, international history and politics, international law or international relations). It allows students to gain access, subject to certain conditions, to the PhD programme in Anthropology and Sociology of Development.
The degree programme comprises compulsory courses, optional seminars and the writing of an original research dissertation (mémoire) in the course of the second year.
Bachelor´s degree in anthropology, sociology or a related discipline, or a multidisciplinary Bachelor´s degree in international affairs or development studies.
