Program description

The aim of this course is to introduce students to the various aspects of development discourse. It is intended to provide an alternative conceptual, historical and theoretical frame to your studies in the field of international law, trade and globalization, and to enable you to critically assess what you have learnt in your other courses. Specifically, the course will help you to understand the centrality of development discourse in the construction and maintenance of contemporary global ordering. The course will give you the tools necessary to begin critically reflecting upon development and the international institutions and global ordering that institutionalises it. Students who successfully complete this course should:

• Have a thorough knowledge of the range of processes and actors involved in the articulation of development and its institutionalisation and implementation
• Have a strong understanding of the role of international institutions, notably the UN, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the WTO, in development
• Be aware of the historical context and range of theories of development
• Be able to assess the effects, both intended and unintended, of particular development initiatives
• Be able to think critically about all of the above
