Mål

The course provides a foundation on (rural) development debates in the global North and South. It gives an overview of key scholarly debates on development (also in relation to the environment). Students will become familiar with conceptual and theoretical positions in the scholarship through reading critiques of key debates. The readings position these debates within current discussions in the global North and South.



The course contributes to students and researchers’ ability to analyse their own work in relation to questions of rural development, environment and development studies more broadly.



The course:

- introduces students to the evolution of ideas and critiques of development and discuss them in the light of current challenges

- provides an understanding of key analytical concepts allowing critical engagement with them and enabling a deeper reading of these in relation to the student’s own area of enquiry

- provides a comparative global North-South approach

- will enable students to contextualise debates and position them in relation to their specific research context
