Politics of Development (PSIR310)
What makes some countries richer and more developed than others? Why is there such an income inequality amongst the world population? These questions have puzzled social scientists for many generations. This course provides insight into the causes of global inequality through an examination of development theory and practice. The course will engage in a critical evaluation of the existing schools of thought and how these address the politics of development. In particular, it will focus on the political economy of Third World Development.
