In this Master’s programme you will examine global inequalities, ranging from their causes, characteristics and possible solutions. International Development Studies is concerned with a broad range of topics like poverty, conflict, security, social and gender inequality, sustainability, education, the environment and the relationship between local, national and global processes.The Master Programme in International Development Studies is anchored by a concern about global inequalities and seeks ways of understanding them, critiquing them, and possibly overcoming them. It addresses issues such as poverty, conflict, security, land rights, gender inequality, education, sustainable development, and climate change, among others, and seeks to draw links between local conditions – in both rural and urban settings – with national and global processes.While stimulating students to think academically and critically about the challenges development brings, it also provides tools for exploring development through governance approaches at multiple levels of scale, inclusive development approaches, through discourse, and through popular and contested representations of what development is and means to different groups of people around the world.
