The future of sustainable development is critically related to the promotion of better governance at the local, national, regional and international levels. Both a cause and a consequence of governance failures, violent conflict is incompatible with sustainable development. Processes of state formation, state failure and state reconstruction play a central role in this nexus between development, governance and conflict.
This master analyses governance problems and possible responses with due consideration of the specific historical pathways of individual countries, as well as the interaction between dynamics at the national state level and the local society level. It also addresses the impact of global developments. Students are familiarized with multidisciplinary theoretical and practical insights that will improve their capacity to analyse governance challenges at different levels, in addition to improving the way in which they relate to processes of violent conflict and development.
The governance programme offers two tracks with specific objectives and courses:
Track 1: Governance, Peace and Conflict. This track explores issues of governance and development against the background of violent conflict and the challenge of post-conflict state reconstruction.
Track 2: Local Governance and Poverty Reduction. This track addresses governance and development challenges from the perspective of local institutions and poverty reduction.
Applicants to this Master must show a keen interest in developmental challenges related to governance, conflict analysis, state and peace building, decentralization challenges.
The PG Cert in NGO and Development Management via distance learning offers you the opportunity to examine the central issues facing developing countries in today’s globalised world and to learn practical skills to work in development. This course not only addresses the theories of development but explores how development works at the grassroots.

The Master in Development Evaluation and Management focuses on the efforts made by a wide range of public and private actors to promote development. It provides a solid understanding of the past and present aid policies of multilateral and bilateral donors, also addressing the major aid modalities and instruments deployed. The institutional characteristics of the actors involved - be they governments, community-based organisations, international NGOs, bilateral or multilateral donors - are analysed in order to attain a better understanding of processes and outcomes. The theoretical perspective is that development can be understood as a set of interlocking collective action problems. The Master programme offers methodological and practical insight into development evaluation, its relevance and challenges.
The programme offers two tracks with specific objectives and courses:
Track 1: National Institutions, Poverty Reduction Strategies and Aid.
This track focuses on the analysis of the interaction between national institutions, local politics and external actors (macro level).
Track 2: Development Interventions and Local Institutional Change.
This track conceptualises socio-political and economic development as the outcome of interactions between a conditioning institutional environment and the agency of local, national and international actors (micro level).
The Master’s programme comprises 12 months, starting and ending mid-September, and consists of four modules.
The first module (Theories of Development, Research Methods I and II) provides an overview of theories of development and gives students up-to-date knowledge of research methods and techniques, both general and programme-specific.
