Inhoud
What are the current topics of the development debate, which issues are on the agenda, and how are these translated into international (development) cooperation? This course critically examines the various key approaches which have dominated international development debate and which underlie the multifarious development practices and policies of the last few decades. The perspective is on the different channels and the main actors and institutions involved, including new donors, private sector, international organizations and international agreements that impact development processes in the Global South. It focuses on the interfaces between academic paradigms, practitioners’ approaches and the debate on questions of international cooperation and development in society at large. The course deals explicitly with the ethical and moral aspects related to development cooperation. The multidisciplinary character of this course makes it also well suited for students of other programs, who may approach development issues from their own respective disciplinary backgrounds.
