About

This joint Political Economy of Late Development programme from London School of Economics and Political Science provides you with a unique opportunity to combine the study of the processes, policy and practice of contemporary development with the study of long-run global processes of growth and divergence.

Overview

Overview

How societies overcome poverty to create healthy, wealthy and sustainable societies - and why some persistently fail to achieve this - are common questions in Development Studies and Economic History.  By combining courses from both fields, you will pursue a high quality programme that combines the in-depth analysis of longer-run historical patterns of growth, explorations of concrete development problems - and policy responses to them, and 'regional' courses that draw on theory and empirical evidence to appraise long and short-run development processes and outcomes in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

The Political Economy of Late Development programme from London School of Economics and Political Science brings together the analysis of long-run growth with modern approaches to development policy and practice.  The full-unit core course in Development introduces you to the theories and historical experience of development, as well as cutting-edge policy debates.  The core couse in Economic History gives you a rigorous exposure to core issues involved in analysing long-run historical change.  You will choose from a wide range of elective courses in both departments, allowing you to compile a programme according to your interests and goals, and will write a dissertation on an approved topic of your choice.
