Emerging Economies and International Development (MSc) DID
King’s International Development Institute (IDI) Our Emerging Economies & International Development MSc offers a distinctive approach to the study of development by focusing on emerging economies. We cover subjects such as development theory, political economy, geography and social policy. You will also have the opportunity to focus on particular countries and regions.
Our MSc course provides you with high-quality post-graduate teaching and research training in the analysis of emerging economies. It offers a distinctive approach to the study of development by focusing on rising economic powers and some of the questions surrounding their emergence as key players in global politics and the economy. It also draws on social scientific expertise from across other departments in the Faculties of Social Sciences & Public Policy and Arts & Humanities.
This course focuses on reviewing economic development theory to ask whether emerging economies offer a new model or models of development. It looks at the strategies that they have adopted to promote development, how inclusive and sustainable or enduring these new strategies are and how emerging markets solve the difficult problems of promoting growth over the longer term. While investigating this last question we will discuss how these countries handle the development and diffusion of technology, how they manage trade and financial flows, how they balance the role of the state and the market, and how they deal with problems of institutional underdevelopment and weak systems of law and accountability.
Duration: 1 year FT / 2 years PT, September to September

MA Governance, Development and Public Policy IDS
Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Brighton This degree (formerly called the MA Governance and Development) provides you with a theoretical and practical understanding of debates on political change and how public authority is created and exercised. Based at IDS, you’ll build your critical and analytical skills, and improve your ability to develop and implement policies across state and non-state organisations.
A distinct feature of the MA is the focus on policy and practice. Core modules – taken by all MA Gov students – provide theoretical and topical foundations for the degree. Optional modules, which build on these foundations, apply concepts and theories to a range of development issues, focusing on equipping students with the methodologies and tools to assess and critique different policy options. We draw upon case-studies, faculty, students, and research partners from Africa, East Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America, and South Asia, to enrich the curriculum of the MA.

BA International Relations and Development
International Development Department, University of Birmingham (IDD) This programme explores some of the world’s most pressing development challenges, from poverty and inequality, to migration, conflict and climate change. In our increasingly globalised world, these problems are growing in complexity and significance. The Sustainable Development Goals aim to tackle these challenges by 2030, but this will require global effort, co-ordination and vision.
On the BA International Relations and Development programme you will apply an international relations lens to understanding and addressing the challenge of global development and learn how development is affected by relations between states, in theory and in practice. You will explore theories of economic and social development, from colonialism to dependency, and develop core disciplinary skills in international relations and international political economy. You will apply these theories to a variety of examples of development and change from across the world, and critically examine different forms of development assistance, from aid to trade relations.
You will explore the implications of international relations for poverty, conflict and inequality through a range of case studies and practical exercises. The BA International Relations and Development programme uses real-world puzzles to bring to life the complex challenges of doing development in practice. It includes a specially designed Working in Development module, which will provide hands-on experience of common tools used in development projects and programmes. The International Relations and Development programme aims to bridge the gap between your academic study and future professional life by ensuring you can apply theory to practice, and providing you with real world insights.
Start date: October

Research Master in Development Studies - Developing Societies and Political Recompositions
Institut d'Etude du Développement Economique et Social, Université Paris 1 (IEDES) The M2 Research course on "Developing societies" is devoted to the study of the relationship between development practices and policies in societies in the South. This pathway is doubly versatile. It is not only pluridisciplinary in the social sciences, which differentiates it from other formations linked to mono-disciplinary paths, but also of a comparative character. She works on African, Latin American and Asian lands and approaches the various themes in a global way, going beyond the classic North / South dichotomy.
This training offer prepares for the research professions in their diversity: doctorate, but also more operational posts (NGOs, national institutions, international) requiring a research approach. Students are considered as young researchers and are associated in this capacity with the activities of doctoral students and researchers of the UMR "Development and Societies", which is backed by training.
The M2R is renewed this year by the creation of a "Cooperative Space Development Studies" elaborated in partnership with the Master ECD (Comparative Study of Development) of the EHESS. This project is one of the winners of the 2014 call for innovative pedagogical projects launched by héSam Université. Funded by heSam, it opens a joint seminar to become a digital module, to offer grants to the field and to set up an applied methodology workshop.

Emerging Economies and Inclusive Development (MSc) DID
King’s International Development Institute (IDI) Our Emerging Economies & Inclusive Development MSc offers a distinctive approach to the study of development. We do this by focusing on emerging economies, with a particular emphasis on poverty reduction, inequality and social policy. You will study development theory, political economy, geography and social policy, and will also have the opportunity to focus on the countries and regions that particularly interest you.
Our course provides you with high-quality postgraduate teaching and research training in the analysis of emerging economies. It also draws on social scientific expertise from across other departments in the Faculties of Social Sciences & Public Policy and Arts & Humanities, which allows you to explore the topic from a variety of different angles. We examine economic development theory to ask whether emerging economies offer a new model or models of development.
We look at the strategies that these countries have adopted to promote development, how inclusive and sustainable or enduring these new strategies are and how emerging markets solve difficult problems of promoting growth over the longer term. To answer this last question, we investigate how these markets manage the development and diffusion of technology, flows of trade and finance, the balance between the state and the market, and problems of institutional underdevelopment and weak systems of law and accountability.

Health Diplomacy and Migration: Addressing the Complexity of Migration From a Health Perspective, 30.09.-02.10.2019, Geneva, Switzerland IHEID
Graduate Institute (IHEID) Many different forms of migration exist and human mobility shapes global health, impacting on domestic and foreign policies of sending, transition and receiving countries. The health of migrants is influenced by these different policies and legal frameworks but also by the practices surrounding migration. Yet, the act of migration alone does not cause any disease. Rather, the socioeconomic, political, cultural and environmental conditions connected to the act of migration can impact on health and the vulnerability to disease. National health systems are often put under pressure to respond to large-scale movements and diplomacy comes into play to find cross-border, collective solutions. Health can serve as an entry point for these diplomatic actions and new governance mechanisms need to be negotiated to respond appropriately to migration crises.
This brand-new course will seek to explore the emerging role of cities as global actors and drivers of change. The course will:
- Assess the impact of migration on health and the achievement of the SDGs
- Introduce and analyse the legal instruments and governance mechanisms used at the interface of health and migration, among others, the Global Compact on Migration and Human Rights
- Explore the challenges involved in providing and ensuring access to health services to all migrants
- Reflect on migration and health in conflict settings and its impact on the neighboring countries
- Experience and learn negotiation skills through a migration-related negotiation scenario, including the challenges to reconcile different political perspectives

Master of Science in Public Policy and Human Development (MPP)
United Nations University, Maastricht Economic and Social Research Institute on Innovation and Technology (UNU-MERIT) Policy issues are becoming more complex, and policymaking has become a structured interaction between networked actors, with national governments and international organisations playing central roles in human development. More than ever, there is a clear need for specialists in policy analysis who can work in international and multi-level policy processes, taking on duties in the analysis of policy problems and the implementation and evaluation of solutions. In order to perform well in this domain, actors require a combination of theoretical background knowledge, technical skills and the opportunity to practise them, as well as a solid understanding of key policy fields.
The Master of Science in Public Policy and Human Development programme is a double-degree programme of Maastricht University’s Graduate School of Governance and University Nations University’s institute UNU-MERIT. In 2018, the programme was re-accredited by the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO) and received the official EAPAA accreditation by the European Association for Public Administration Accreditation.
The starting point of the MPP programme is to stimulate students to gain an understanding of the basic idea of good governance. The emphasis of the programme lies with the question of how can public policy be dealt with in the most effective and efficient way.
