Summary

This course recognises that international development environments and related debates constantly evolve. It captures this dynamism in its multi-layered approach and it highlights the connections made between different disciplinary areas. You will develop an understanding of the key structures, processes, institutions and relationships relevant to international development, introducing you to the key concepts and issues in this area of study.

You will critically analyse the role and impact of major financial institutions such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund; the role of the United Nations, with particular emphasis on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals; the role of MNCs, NGOs and civil society more generally. You will also locate yourself within the context of processes of international development and reflect on how your actions, or inactions, help or hinder the promotion of global social justice and sustainability.

By exploring how the twin agendas of social justice and sustainable development can be advanced, you will be best placed to enter graduate roles directly linked to international development, such as regional and national governments. Using our links with industry, you will have the opportunity to gain experience and vital contacts within a wide range of roles directly linked to international development.
