This unit explores the processes and social dynamics underpinning economic development. You will engage critically with key themes - such as social policy, employment, migration, aid, and finance - informing the discourse of ‘development economics’, and reflect on alternative approaches to understanding the connections, tensions and contradictions between economic development, growth and wellbeing. You will consider key debates within this scholarship in their historical context and survey contending theoretical approaches in relation to comparative global economic development.
