Development: context and practice

This online module explores development practice and the context in which it takes place. It asks you to think about development activities from multiple perspectives – to think ‘out of the box’ – about what development activity and theory are all about. It takes a multidisciplinary approach to development, highlighting the interconnectedness of different historical and theoretical perspectives as well as the contradictions between these and the reality on the ground. This module provides an ideal introduction to international development, facilitating the building of skills that will give you a good grasp of contemporary development theory and practice.
