Critical Debates in Development Theory (807AF)
30 credits, Level 7 (Masters)
During this module you will examine the theories associated with modernisation, dependency, participatory approaches, post-modernism and all-encompassing 'globalisation'.
You will explore how our thinking about development has changed over time and why it has changed. While theoretical in orientation, you will consider through seminar discussions that the division between 'theory' and 'practice' is to some extent misleading.
