Global Political Economy of Development, 15 credits

About the course

This module will provide an international and inter-disciplinary overview of the major issues surrounding development theory and practice in the XXth and XXIst centuries. The two specific objectives we try to achieve in this module are: (1) deepening of students’ theoretical understanding of the concept of development, as a field of global political economy; and (2) a critical assessment of the results and future prospects of economic and political development. The students taking this optional module will gain the knowledge to critically evaluate the changing nature of development and development studies as a discipline, as well as to critically examine the practice/policy and guiding principles of developmental agendas today.
