Introducing International Development Management

Development is a phenomenon with a pedigree stretching back over 200 years, rather than the period since the Second World War and the beginnings of decolonisation as is generally conceived. This unit, which is broken down into four main sections (each relating to a course in the Global Development Management masters programme), focuses on different elements of development. Section 2 examines the context and practice of development and different conceptualisations of poverty. The next section examines the actors and structures of development, and specifically the ‘management’ of development processes. The institutions of development are the focus of Section 4, with a focus on inter-organisational relations and negotiation of development actors. The final section focuses on development in difficult contexts – specifically development interventions, such as peacebuilding, in the context of violent conflict.
