Course description

MSc International Development: Politics, Governance and Development Policy examines the obstacles to, and pathways towards, more legitimate, democratic and pro-poor forms of governance at global, national and local levels - a topic that is currently centre-stage on the international development agenda.

The course interrogates the discursive paradigms and material interventions in the area of politics and governance, which has moved to the centre of the international development agenda since the late 1980s.

It is therefore ideal if you're interested in the many ways that politics is critical to the success of development, and would like to examine the 'lived' or 'real' politics in developing countries and the dynamics underpinning change.

Aims

  • Provide critical insights into different theoretical and disciplinary perspectives on the politics and governance of development.
  • Develop your analytical skills in critically evaluating and employing different theories of politics, governance and policy analysis.
  • Provide you with an opportunity to deepen your understanding of the how politics, governance and the formulation and implementation development policy interact in the global South.
  • Provide critical insights into the key strategies, policies and practices currently employed to promote `good governance' and improved policy processes in the global South.
  • Develop professionally-oriented skills related to formulating, investigating and implementing different approaches to promoting good governance.
  • Provide a wide range of options for advanced training in areas of specialist expertise relevant to politics, governance and development policy.
  • Develop advanced competencies in transferable areas, including developing reasoned arguments, gathering, organising and using evidence and information from a wide variety of sources, undertaking both team-based and independent work to deadlines, and both written and verbal forms of communication.
  • Assist you in developing your specialist area of expertise within the field of politics, governance and development policy, and applying their understanding and skills through supervised individual research culminating in a dissertation.
