Politics of Global Development
This field of study is concerned with the relations between and among actors in development, how these relations are experienced, and in which ways they are attended by struggle, contestation, conflict and positive changes.
Development is a process, which frequently involves contests over knowledge and power, and hence one which is inherently political. How and by whom ‘development’ is ‘organized’, by what criteria it should be assessed, revised, or transformed, raises central issues and problems, to which all the courses in the field articulate.
