Está orientado a la especialización académica tras los estudios de grado y a la formación investigadora, centrándose en el estudio de las relaciones entre el fenómeno de la globalización y los procesos de desarrollo. Se trata de una propuesta docente de carácter interdisciplinar que se inscribe en lo que en otros países europeos es la tradición de los Estudios sobre Desarrollo (Development Studies).
Además de las de carácter metodológico y/o de las referidas a técnicas cuantitativas, las materias impartidas en este máster se centran en dos dimensiones fundamentales: la globalización, entendida como proceso de mundialización de interrelaciones y procesos tanto en el ámbito económico como en el social, político o cultural y el desarrollo, abordado en nuestro caso desde los paradigmas del desarrollo humano y la sostenibilidad teniendo en cuenta el papel de la cooperación internacional, como instrumento de la sociedad para promover la convivencia pacífica y el desarrollo a escala global.
School of International Development, University of East Anglia (DEV) The process of globalisation is central to an understanding of the contemporary world. The nature of this process and its implications for international development are hotly debated and you’ll tackle key questions including: - Is globalisation leading to increasing international inequality and poverty, or does the expansion of international trade in goods and services provide new opportunities for developing countries? - How can we make sense of emergent trends such as fair trade, social entrepreneurship, corporate social responsibility and sustainable consumption? - Does globalisation call for a radical overhaul of existing international, national and local institutions? - And why is it so difficult to solve global environmental problems such as climate change?
Gain comprehensive knowledge in the field of globalisation, business and sustainable development and equip yourself with the necessary skills to pursue a career in this fascinating area. You’ll integrate different disciplinary perspectives to analyse the economic, political, social and environmental dimensions of globalisation. You’ll consider the resistance to globalisation and how this has played out in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
This course adopts a unique interdisciplinary approach, making UEA the perfect place to help you gain that all-important competitive edge.
During this one-year, full-time course you will explore theory and research relating to learning, teaching and assessment and educational policy. You may not have professional experience in teaching, but there is a school placement module in an educational setting as an optional part of this course (limited numbers).
Teaching Teaching and learning takes place via lectures, seminars, tutorials, discussion, active inquiry and investigations. Regular meetings with a personal tutor support and encourage your learning and understanding. A weekly tutorial and a Study of Education course accompanies the taught modules.
Our aim is to make you an informed and critical development practitioner. You will be equipped with all the practical skills that are demanded by development agencies. You will also gain insight across the wider picture, understanding how developing countries can progress and how the poor can be mobilised to escape from the poverty trap.
The course also explores how NGOs can play a key role in promoting social and economic progress and you will develop the ability to identify, design and implement programmes with a view to engaging with and enhancing the situation of the poor.
Our students and staff are a diverse group from different backgrounds and your tutors have expertise in many key development regions and countries from South Asia and Latin America to Middle East and Africa.

Development Studies Association Ireland (DSAI) The third DSAI Summer School focuses on innovative ways of doing development research which places participation and "citizen-driven" research at the centre of its practice. It explores the relationship between research and action, and the role of researcher activist. This summer school examines methodologies of citizen empowerment and ‘doing participation’ in the context of urban and rural poverty, displacement, and globalisation. It problematizes the ‘expert stance’ and asks how the activist practitioner researcher can promote both equity and efficiency in development and humanitarian contexts through lay methodologies. It asks how we can scale this learning beyond micro settings to being embedded within the global development and humanitarian community.
Graduate Institute (IHEID) Through academic lectures and direct interaction with negotiators and practitioners from international organisations, participants acquire a clear sense of the core mission of the UN as well as develop critical analysis of future challenges in international relations. The Summer Programme on the United Nations explores the concepts and key issues of peace and security, human rights and humanitarian challenges, international development, North-South relations and the future of global governance.
Understand the UN System, particularly its creation, development and various agencies. Explore the challenges faced by the United Nations and debate the future of international cooperation.
At the end of the 2 weeks, participants will be able to: - Understand the core mission of the UN and how it deals with key global issues such as human rights and the environment. - Critically analyse key issues around peace and security, human rights and humanitarian challenges, international development, and North-South relations. - Appraise the future of multilateral action through conference simulations and role play, as well as visits to key institutions in international Geneva. - Engage with academics and practitioners on what could be done to reinvent global governance at a time of great international uncertainty
Applications will be open from end of January to 1 May
Master; Institute of Development Policy and Management, University of Antwerp (IOB) The future of sustainable development is critically related to the promotion of better governance at the local, national, regional and international level. At once a cause and a consequence of governance failures, violent conflict is incompatible with sustainable development. Central in this nexus between development, governance and conflict are processes of state formation, state failure and state re-construction. The study programme analyses governance problems and possible responses with due account of specific historical pathways of countries and the interaction between the national state level, local society level dynamics and the impact of global developments.
Most of our students are engaged in development, profes-sionally and/or as researchers. The objective of the Master’s programme is to provide them with multidisciplinary theo-retical insights and practical tools that will improve their capacity to analyse governance challenges at different levels and how they relate to processes of violent conflict and development. Graduates will understand and be able to analyse, from the local to the global level, the governance problems confronting developing countries today. Theoretical insights, policy strategies and best practices as well as failures are explored in order that graduates could apply this knowledge in their future professional environments.
The Master’s programme in Governance and Development offers two tracks with specific objectives, courses and tar-get audiences. The first track explores governance and development issues against the background of violent con-flict and the challenge of post-conflict state reconstruction. The second track addresses governance and development challenges from the particular perspective of local institutions and poverty reduction.

Please contact us for further information; School of International Development, University of East Anglia (DEV) The MA Globalisation and International Development degree will analyse the key debates and perspectives on the economic, political, social and environmental dimensions of globalisation. Postgraduate Students with an interest in global issues will be provided with the tools to critically analyse the process of globalisation and its impact on international development. Study will be informed by case studies, theory, workshops, seminars, debates and forms of media.
The process of globalisation is central to an understanding of the contemporary world. The nature of the process and its implications for international development are hotly debated:
Is globalisation leading to increasing international inequality and global poverty or does it provide new opportunities for developing countries? What is the role of local and international politics? Has globalisation led to an erosion of national sovereignty or is it contributing to the spread of democracy internationally? Does globalisation require a radical overhaul of the existing international political and institutional system? How can global environmental challenges best be met?
This Masters will consider not only the process of globalisation but also the counter-tendencies and resistance to globalisation and how these are played out in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Master; Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Brighton The global economy has experienced unprecedented shifts in economic power from West to East, rapid technological transformation amid increasing turbulence and deep inequalities between and within countries. As globalisation evolves the private sector is emerging as a critical actor in development. Businesses are the driving force for the economy and can help to promote sustainable economic growth and reduce poverty. Understanding the key challenges of globalisation, the role of businesses in achieving sustainable development and how development agencies should engage with them are the key objectives of this MA programme.
Students will learn the analytical and practical skills needed to understand globalisation processes, the role of business in development and how policy makers and policy can interact with businesses to promote development. The programme will provide an insight into the ramifications of globalisation and the policies needed to positively manage these as well as an in-depth understanding of the relationship between business, development and economic growth.
The programme provides an innovative mix of teaching methods that combines conventional lectures and workshops as well as interactions with people from business, the public sector, NGOs and international organisations.
Applicants with experience or knowledge of private-sector engagement are welcome to apply. Type of recognition: IAC/EADI cluster accreditation;
