Special Topic: Development Policy
This subject will review policy debates evolving around some of the key international – bilateral and multilateral – development actors. It will consider some of the interconnections and tensions around integrated policy: attempts to connect development efforts to other (inter)national interests. Drawing from literature on the anthropology of development, it will also require students to step back and treat development policy as an empirical phenomenon and ask how policy really works: does it actually do what it claims to do?
Upon completion of this subject, students should:
A written assignment (2000 words) due during the semester, and a final essay (3000 words) due in the exam period.
Hurdle Requirement: Students are required to attend a minimum of 75% of classes in order to qualify to have their written work assessed. Regular participation in class is required.
Assessment submitted late without an approved extension will be penalised at 10% per working day. In-class tasks missed without approval will not be marked. All pieces of written work must be submitted to pass this subject.
