Although highly contested, the term 'development' suggests that poverty and oppression are not inevitable; that social justice and freedom for all in a sustainable society are possible. However, in a globalising world of multiple conflicts and extreme disparities between rich and poor, the prospects for achieving this possibility are challenging. This course examines a variety of frameworks for understanding such challenges and prospects, equipping you with the knowledge and skills to work locally for forms of development in the international context that are just, participatory and sustainable.
