Subject Area: Development Studies

In Current Debates in Development Studies we will analyse the concepts and cases at the heart of current debates in Development Studies from the global to the local level (and back again). You will focus on debates taking place in academic literature, policy and activist circles and the media. You will have the opportunity to identify debates and present these to your peers, identifying the actors, interests and ideas being articulated and the consequences for those affected by the issues being debated. The weekly course content will vary year to year to ensure the most cutting edge content and relevancy.
