Course Introduction

Students explore factors that create and sustain poverty; lived experience of poverty and being poor; global and national policies, programmes and institutions designed to tackle poverty and inequality; factors leading to countries growing richer, healthier and more secure. Students learn how theories at general level apply in specific regional contexts and how similar policies and development interventions have different outcomes based on particular political systems, cultures and societies.
