Environment, Livelihoods & Development In The South (Module)

Module description

This is a half unit core module which complements the other core unit on “Development and Environmentalism in the ‘South’” for students taking the MA in Environment and Development. The module will give students an understanding of the importance of interlinkages between the natural environment and contemporary livelihoods in the “south”, and of the social and political import of these linkages. The module will also explore the impact of local and global policies, debates and trends on the nature of local development, livelihoods and inclusion. The module will develop these themes with reference to marginalised, agricultural and urban/industrial settings in the South, in each case presenting a series of case studies that students can use as the basis for their research-based extended essays.

Please note that this is indicative and may change from year to year.
