London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)

Course Introduction

Development is not just about increasing growth and

political and social rights. It is about creating self'sustaining

institutions that liberate societies from low'level

deprivation traps by increasing productivity, freedom and

cooperative interdependence. This programme gives you the theory and practical tools to

drive such transformations forward by enabling you to

understand why some societies have succeeded and others

have failed.
