International Aid and Development Studies - ANTH715

This unit considers development studies from two interrelated perspectives: anthropology of development, which examines theoretical approaches to development over the past 50 years, and development anthropology, which engages with contemporary practices within development programs. Importantly it explores how these two broad paradigms feed into changing approaches to donor-driven project implementation. Using case studies to illustrate the complexity of development processes, we consider how major donors and NGOs operate, gender empowerment, politics of representation, mobility and health vulnerability, development-induced displacement, and changing approaches to social impact mitigation.
