The concept of development conjures up a plethora of questions, the core of which aims to understand why some countries and peoples are wealthy while others are poor? Alternatively stated, why the spread of global wealth has been so unfairly distributed? However, herein lies one of the main challenges that we face when we discuss development, namely, the fact that development scholars often conceptualise and define 'development' in radically different and quite often, competing ways. These differences and conflicting views are often based on contested concepts such as 'change', 'progress', 'transformation', 'emancipation', 'integration', 'growth', and 'justice' to name a few.
This course has an international focus that discusses various perspectives of development theory and practice, and their interrelations. The range of topics stretches from global to local level focusing on a wide variety of issues.
Overall, the course aims to provide an open, creative, interdisciplinary and theoretically pluralist thinking space regarding matters related to development.
