Descrizione

This degree is particularly suitable for students who are interested in understanding the uneven patterns and trajectories of development between and within countries, and how different structural conditions as well as the behaviour of key development actors shape the development process.


Central themes of the degree include dynamics of state-civil society relations, democracy and democratisation, and the risk of intrastate violence in developing countries, all of which will be analysed within an explicit political science framework.
