The module will cover a range of conceptual and empirical material pertaining to the development geography of 'Third World' countries. Research conducted in the global South is often associated with the 'development' label, and development often serves as shorthand for the modernisation of the global economy. Mainstream 'modernisation-as-development' has lost credibility with the persistence of poverty in Africa, Asia and elsewhere. THis module will enable students to understand the process of economic divergence which has been experiences by the poor, rather than the ascent towards parity with the First World, which was anticipated in the post-war era. The different approaches towards development are discussed as are the politics of international trade and economic policy, including examples relating to Natural Resources and the Clothing Trade.
