|* The offering term is subject to change without prior notice|
The course focuses on an introduction to current dominant trends of development programmes and policies. It will first offer critical perspectives and analytical tools to evaluate development actors, and then focus on various areas of development activities such as aid, philanthropic organisations, development banks, infrastructure projects, financialisation, microcredit, surveillance and military technologies, migration control, food systems, climate change and energy policies, and water resources. These topics will be assessed by readings of texts of dominant actors in these fields as well as of critical academic analyses on these topics. The focus will be on the identification of dominant actors in development and the analysis of their development strategies. Case studies in a group and a simulation exercise will complement the understanding of current development dynamics.
