On following current discussions in politics and business but also in much of academia, one suspects that after nearly six decades of development studies - with rich and varied outputs - we are back to square one: the achievement of economic growth as a development target is omnipresent and any other issue only seems to play a subordinate role. But what does this mean for the lives of the majority of the world's population living in underdeveloped economies and what does it mean for those in more prosperous societies?
This course elaborates on the underpinnings of various streams in development theory within their historical contexts allowing participants to gain a deeper understanding of the world and the attempts made to reduce its inequities.
