About Global Development and International Political Economy at School of Politics and International Studies, University of Leeds

This programme examines political, economic, and socio-cultural transformations in the Global South and interrogates the dynamics, challenges and opportunities confronting its societies - with a specialist focus on how globalisation, international economic interdependence and the internationalisation of political structures and processes are changing politics globally.

You'll learn about the experiences and viewpoints of people and nations of the Global South regarding development issues. You'll also review strategies, programmes and policies in development, including organisations and donors promoting development, and assess the progress made by different development actors towards key international development goals.

You'll explore debates and controversies at the centre of contemporary development challenges and analyse both the theories and realities of development, to understand the different approaches, practices and discourses involved.

We also offer other specialist pathways for those looking to focus on a particular area of global development such as Africa, education and gender. We also offer a general MA Global Development programme.

Research insight

The programme has a close working relationship with the Global Development research group that aims to examine central debates within the field of global development from an interdisciplinary perspective.

The Global Development research group is also actively involved, amongst others, in the Centre for Global Development, a university-wide network that promotes cross-disciplinary approaches to the field, as well as the Leeds Centre for African Studies.
