About

The Development Policy and Politics programme from University of Birmingham makes a direct link between academic and practical policy approaches to international development, with an emphasis on exploring and understanding the politics of developing countries and the relationship between politics and development.

Overview

This Development Policy and Politics programme from University of Birmingham is taught by some of the leading thinkers on the relationship between politics and development. You will also benefit from engagement with major research programmes focused on the politics of development based in IDD, including the Governance and Social Development Resource Centre.

It is now clearer than ever before that the greatest development challenges of our time – poverty, conflict, famine, poor governance etc. – are driven primarily by political, not technical, factors. The aim of this programme is to provide theoretical and empirical training to students to enable them to understand the role that politics plays in both facilitating and undermining development, in both the North and the South.

Career

The knowledge and skills gained in the programme will equip graduates for jobs in international, national and local government and non-governmental organisations, think tanks and consultancies.
