Inhoud vakHistorical events such as colonialism and the development of industrial
capitalist economies in Europe led to a current world-system of unequal
global distribution of wealth that we often call the split between
developed and underdeveloped world. This phenomenon leads to very
explicit political, social and economic conditions that dominate the
world today. In this specialisation, we approach critically the ideas of
development and their historical roots in 19th century and especially in
the period after World War II. We analyse and talk about current
international development policies and current trends within the
development industry, approaching interactions between (inter)national
stakeholders and local populations. We approach in reference to
development themes such as civil society and State, global commodity
chains, NGOs and International Organisations, poverty,
industrialisation, urbanisation, family and kinship, religion and
globalisation, structural adjustments, fair trade and ethical
capitalism, but also about resistance to development, de-growth, Commons
or post-development theories, to mention just a few of the issues that
we will discuss.
